Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 88.5 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 2 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Alex H on 11/19/2012 & rated 86 points: Rather stoic and structured with gevrey like mushroom truffle and earth notes. Quite A serious wine and showing more youth than its age. A stern father of a wine. (933 views)
 Tasted by Paul S on 11/16/2012 & rated 91 points: Burgundies - 2004, 2007 and other "Off" vintages (Giant Garoupa Restaurant): I liked this. It was a rather solid 1er Cru, with an inviting nose of cherries and blueberry scents topped by a touch of earth and hints of herb and spice; and then a more masculine palate, where meat and earth took centre-stage on the attack, followed by sappy notes of cherries and blueberries, with more of that Morey spicey, herbiness at the finish. The tannins were just a bit on the powdery, teeth-coating side for me, something that told of the vintage, but otherwise, this was a pretty good wine with plenty of character. Drinking well now.

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.
