The wine was a 2005 Jean-Luc Dubois, Ladoix, La Combe. Cherry fruit, damp earth and a little spice on the nose. Medium color. Medium body and a taste of both fresh and dried fruit, damp earth, a little mushroom. Long, pleasant finish that ended with acid and enough tannin to clear the mouth. Nicely balanced. Very good for a moderately priced Burgundy from a very good vintage and an excellent match with the chicken.
This was the second bottle for me of this wine. You can read about the first one here.
13% alcohol and $24.
