| ||Tasted by gilrbo on 10/19/2013: Opened five hours in advance and drunk over dinner with friends; no formal TN. Finished the bottle three days later.|
Pure, lean, autumnal and delicious. With time in the glass it put a bit of flesh on and after about two hours it was at its best, showing still good fruit.
Best on day one.
Noble and very fine. (901 views)
| ||Tasted by Jeff W on 1/10/2012: This is one of those wines that demands attention and concentration from the first sip; it asks for a response from the head more than the pleasure centres. |
Very mineral and razor sharp; the first impression is almost shocking. Behind this the purity and quality are clear - it has a precision and definition, giving it a steely core to counterpoint the surface prettiness. Then there is the persistence of the finish, long and delicate and softly spiced. Impressive. exc. (1788 views)

Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
