Ahhh...ça pinote à souhait ici! Au nez, c'est floral et sur les petites baies rouge. En bouche, souple et digeste avec un beau fruit, des framboises et des fraises avec du poivre. Assez long et suave en finale. Très bien.
Second wine at the NSG tasting. A light rusty red wine with perfume and stable notes on the nose. Surprising few characters on the nose and on the palette. It is a straight forward wine with some acidity. I believe the wine is just closed and needs time to age. It may have entered its sleeping phase at the moment.
bright, clear red color, clean fresh fruit (red currant at first, and then deepened into cherry after about an hour), some mushroom notes in the background. Paired very well with spiced venison. Overall impression was light and bright, with hints of more complex aromas appearing from time to time.
Burgundy Night: Pick the Grand Cru (Extra Space): Tasted blind. Appearance is clear, pale intensity, ruby colour. Legs. Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of soy sauce, earth, slight truffles, red cherries. Developing. On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol, medium tannins, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of sweet red cherries, strawberry, earth, slight truffle. Long finish. Quite approachable and had me guessing 2008 vintage. Very good quality. Very nice drinking now. Will develop more tertiary notes over the next 5 years.
