This Pinot Noir from Burgundy has been sitting in my cellar for a while now. I opened it for friends who I am introducing to other regions and varietals. The wine has a nice shade of red and is see through. The nose offers up cherry, red cola and an earthy spiciness. The palate is very smooth- floral with red fruits, nice fine grained acidity, pomegranate and rhubarb. The long finish was zesty with some acidic juiciness and a trace of tannic backbone. While young at 10 years of cellaring, this one is a candidate for extended time in the dark, it will reward the patient and develop some nice tertiary flavors. It has the fruit and structure to go another 10-15 years. I paired it with seared Trout, Rostì, some salad and steamed green veggies. It worked a treat. For $80 it is pricy, but then again good Burgundy is never cheap. 91 points and 5 stars from me. Drink till 2035. Salut….
