2015 DOMAINE DU GRISY BOURGOGNE, COTES DU AUXERRE $18
I get a lot of dark concentrated berry; cherries, black raspberry, and cranberry jam. There's a vivid dark raspberry to the finish and just the barest hint of gamy barnyard on the mid palate giving the wine an added dimension. The acidity is bright and refreshing, but it's behind that lush, supple fruit and isn't immediately apparent.
