Domaine Maume, Gevrey-Chambertin, 2005. 

We knew we were drinking this wine too young, but we drank all our everyday wine and had nothing left except more pricey stuff that we bought last year. 

It was indeed very good, but the fruit is so sweet it sort of obliterates the structure, if that makes any sense at all. This would be much better in 5 years, but alas we have done drunk it all. So I propose that you head over to the Wine House, buy a bottle for $59.99 and sit on it for a few years. Then invite me over so I can try it again. Any takers??
