A pinot noir that tasted like a Cabernet Sauvignon blend. I think it is an expectation management problem. You don’t open a bottle of pinot expecting it to taste like Cab. Tannins are noticeable but not raw on the palate – very rich blackberry. Wasn’t thrilled.
Pinot noir from Beaune, Burgundy. Rich mouthfeel. Very dark berry. Very nice to drink but perhaps less interesting than the 2006 Domaine Fèry Savigny-lès-Beaune. This is the first cru wine of this summer.
KLWine Notes: More weight, with those chocolate notes that are classic for this vineyard, located on the north side of the band of Beaune 1er Crus, just above Beaune Greves.
PS: Not on a drinking binge. Just catching up with the note taking.
