Community Tasting Notes
| ||Tasted by rm wines on 8/8/2013: Decanted 2 hours prior to serving. Consistent with past bottles, very expressive on the nose, and good fruit on the palate with a bit of spice. Delicious. (1296 views)|
| ||Tasted by rm wines on 5/27/2013: Another great bottle of this wine. Starts with some funkiness and dryness, but with a little bit of air it really shows its stuff. It's light on the palate, as many '96s seem to be, with some crunchy red fruits and a good degree of minerality. The expressiveness continues into the lengthy finish. In short, exactly what you'd hope for from a solid 1er that's just hitting its stride. (1270 views)|
| ||Tasted by clayfu on 3/5/2013: drinking incredible right now. The nose is this gorgeous baking spice with fresh strawberries and white pepper. The moment you pour it into the glass it just explodes. The nose just kept going for hours as it got more and more expressive as the depth of the fruit built. |
On the palate you get that soft texture with concentrated dense red fruit and this wonderful minerality that persists throughout the finish. The broad structure makes me think the wine will fill out even more over time.
Drink or hold, up to you :D (1675 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.
