Palate: Spices is the first sense, followed by sourness and sweetness of cherry and strawberry, minimum oak, light to medium body with dissolved tannins, good touch of acidity

This is a good and decent bottle of Burgundy that is not overpriced. I do enjoy this type of bottle: can be drunk as everyday wine and good enough for a good day out. This bottle of Domaine Bart is perhaps engineered to be flavourful at this young age. So, raise your glass for this delicacy.
