Bob! What a pity the Morgon wasn't good. I think Robin was right: it does sound like mild cork taint. I think the tell tale sign of a very mildly corked wine is that it has no or very little aftertaste.
I believe 2004 had issues with rain during harvest, but most that I have tasted haven't suffered from being diluted as IIRC the weather until then had been pretty fine and good growers of course were very selective in what grapes would be used. Mostly I have found a slightly unpleasant tartness to be a problem with the 2004s but even that seems to have disappeared from most wines during the last year. I don't recall tasting the Morgon 04 but the other 04s have IMO been fine from Drouhin, so I would be surprised if they messed the Morgon up - but anything is possible.
Mike! Thanks for the note! I've liked the Bojo-Village from Drouhin also, but do find the Crus more satisfying. But in my experience the Village will, when this young, show much better the next day open. On the first day it is just too primary for my tastes but on the second the mineral and earthy nuances come out. If you haven't yet drunk the few glasses, hold them for tomorrow!
James! That sounds lovely - it seems to be just at the spot I like my Bojos. Except I didn't think it would have been quite so ripe as to have raisins! But I guess Bojostan is so close the Rhone already that similar weather was there in 98? In the Rhone I've found too many raisiny wines from that vintage. Anyone have much experience with the 98 Bojo vintage?
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
No longer ITB.
