Another dinner at e’cco

Well another dinner at e’cco. A family function this time, and only two wines. First was a Bouchard Pere et fils Meursault “Genevrieres” 2004, probably as good a bottle as I’ve had from close to a dozen examples: clean fruits with some gloss and sap, energy and balance, and terrific length. Second bottle was a Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin villages 2003: from a hot vintage and one I am not keen on at all. A nose of cherries and raisins with leaf and a touch of tobacco. The palate is not as clean nor as fresh as I would like. Ripe fruits, leaf, sap, cherries and dry spices. Also has a green raisiny edge that seems to power the palate. Marginal as a dry red, but disappointing as a Burgundy.
