Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 87.3 pts. and median of 87 pts. in 21 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Wine-Strategies on 1/2/2014: Aerated 1 hr, served non-blind. I've had rosé wines with more body (and personality) than this. Too much acid, too little fruit (and that means a lot coming from a confirmed member of the AFWE). 13,0% abv (1390 views)
 Tasted by BurgAndy on 12/26/2013: Yikes. Lean with screeching acidity and high-toned red pinot fruit. This would pair well with Tums and Mylanta. (851 views)
 Tasted by liteagilis on 12/23/2013: Still like it after 7 bottles over two years. Preferred it to Coche Bourgogne rouge 08 tonight (812 views)
 Tasted by zscheiner on 7/24/2013: This is rustic and savory, with earth, bramble and a tannic spine, but there's plenty of black cherry fruit too. Drinking well now but will only get better, I'll hold my remaining two bottles until at least 2016. Fantastic QPR from Garagiste, wish I had bought a case. (1105 views)
 Tasted by tbriggs on 5/20/2013: A little more wood than I would have liked, but otherwise good and with nice character for the price. Rebuy: maybe. (1093 views)
 Tasted by liteagilis on 5/5/2013: Great little bottle from Garagiste. Clearly evolving but not yet at its peak. Smoky, sous bois fruit. Herbs. No noticeable oak. Medium body. Typical (although quickly changing) firm, Faiveley tannin. Probably has 5 more years in it and I love $20 bottles that run. (726 views)
 Tasted by liteagilis on 4/22/2013: Didnt take a formal note but definitely in it's drinking window. Delicious in fact. Light to medium body. Smoky nose, sous bois red fruit. Fresh and lively acidity. Lovely little wine actually. Wouldnt pay a fortune for it, but for 20 bucks it was a nice Sunday night wine. (427 views)
 Tasted by Yme on 3/23/2013 & rated 89 points: Clear ruby, light intensity. Red fruits, soil and mushrooms on the nose. Clean, fresh mouthfeel with medium tannins. Light to medium bodied. Plenty of primary red fruits initially before some mushroom, soil and wood herbal notes evolved. Long length (747 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 2/8/2013: Drinking very well with some air. Improving. (749 views)
 Tasted by chrisanderika on 7/2/2012: Nice wine but past its prime now. (1475 views)
 Tasted by profiler54 on 5/28/2012 & rated 89 points: Opened and decanted for 45 min, served in Riedel Vinum Burgundy stems at 63 F. Clear garnet color of medium intensity, Nose of damp forest floor, mushrooms, cherries, rubarb, and plum. This wine evolved a great deal over the course of drinking. It was promising at first. Excellent burgundy value Very good to Excellent (1176 views)
 Tasted by chrisanderika on 2/5/2012 & rated 88 points: Lovely but we should have had this last year as 2006 was in the end a tricky Burgundy vintage. Brick ruby color. Musty raspberry on the nose, understated red fruit palate but the finish a little more interesting with an oak upswing. (1295 views)
 Tasted by Barolo Raymond on 8/21/2011 & rated 87 points: Very light ruby, completely transparent at full measure. Light earthy nose. Dry, high acidity, medium tannins, supple yet firmly present. Strawberries, small red cherries, red berries, earthy notes. Medium body, medium finish with acidity and tannins well balanced. Not very complex yet well crafted for what it wants to be. Typical light 'petit vin Bourgogne'; swig and enjoy.
Value/money= 7. (1567 views)
 Tasted by Wine-Strategies on 7/19/2011: Aerated 30 minutes. I followed this over 3 days, it was basically unchanged. The wine was overly reductive, to the point that it simply didn't ever leave the starting gate. I'm hoping it's bottle variation and therefore I'm not leaving a numerical score. One bottle remains. 13,0% abv (1472 views)
 Tasted by TannicBeast on 3/14/2011 & rated 88 points: Nice tart cherries and strawberries, nose a little subdued. Medium plus acidity, mild tannins. Very approachable and food friendly. Drink now or in a year or two. Tried it in Paris. (1451 views)
 Tasted by Wine-Strategies on 6/16/2010: what RN said. This comes across as quite simple at the moment. I have two more that will rest for at least 2-3 years. There is certainly some decent raw material to work with, but it requires too much coaxing at the moment. Drink thru 2016 (1677 views)
 Tasted by RN on 5/10/2010 & rated 86 points: This wine is quite bittersweet - quite tart with a lot of acid dominating. Fruit evident but still quite subdued. Probably needs another couple of years in the bottle. (1610 views)
 Tasted by ckinv368 on 4/12/2010: Great smooth fruit taste, with nice lingering finish and hint of peaches and apricots (1607 views)
 Tasted by RN on 4/5/2010 & rated 86 points: Pleasant and relatively straight forward with simple fruit. It does not improve with air over the short term - tends to flatten out. Enjoyable and great value for money. (1612 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 3/17/2010: Opened up very nice with a good sense of pinocity, red berries dusted in confection sugar. Then the wine tightened almost visibly with air, recoiling into the glass. Decent concentration, no real noticeable tannin, tart red fruit, good acidity, excellent with even a nibble of food. Good definition and more complexity showed themselves again - albeit only in glimpses - after a couple of hours. This should rest for a year at least but should begin to drink well and last for several more. Nice wine and very good value. (1652 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.
