Domaine Machard de Gramont Aloxe-Corton "Les Morais" 2005

Rustic nose. Earth, iron filings and crushed ants. Bright cherry fruits and hard wood spices. Maybe a bit of taint too; I cannot decide. A bit thin and lifeless on opening, and though it fleshes out a bit with time it could never be accused of being over fruited. Which is a bit strange for a very good vintage. 13.0% abv and sealed under cork. Price-wise, I think it was in the mid $30s. 84 points.
