Community Tasting Notes (average 90 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 2 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Johnnybegood on 8/22/2014 & rated 90 points: Color: A little cloudy in appearance, probably from the sediment, but otherwise dull red with a tad of brown around the edges. This looks mature.

Taste: This old wine took about 20 minutes to open up. At first it was very acidic and uncharming but soon the light body wine showed its volnay terror with a slightly sour cherry feel and acids on the finish. It was very well balanced with no major flaws however it lacked the depth of and complexity of a premier cru bottle and in this regard is a fairly simple mature burgundy that is drinking well now and because of the acids will likely hold for a few more years. I bought a few bottles for the experience but if you have any I would drink up soon. A good but not excellent bottle of plain volnay most likely past it's peak but still holding ti's own.

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.
