Too young again

Made a milk braised Boston butt from Brinkley farms. A delicious piece of pork from right down the road.

I should probably keep my hands off of these, but I really like the way the lean, spice-box fruit shows right now. It is a bit tight and young and not as aromatically expressive as it will be, but I really like how the verve, snap, and tannin work with fatty food at this stage. I’ll try to keep my hands off for at least another 3 years, but this can certainly go for a long time. A great value in red Burgundy.

2005 Desvignes Morgon Côte du Py Javernières
OK, I’m pressing my luck with this one. I think it is finally starting to shut down. I bought a good bit, so I could afford to be profligate. No more. Hands off for 2 years and should hold for many more.

Thanks for note on Desvignes.

Upper or Lower Tier?

I have both in deep storage.

Oh and it is the "Cote de Py" bottling or the Javernieres? in 2005 there was a CDP, Jav 1 and Jav 2.
