Tasted double blind from a bottle that had been opened the day before. Lots of ripe, meaty black fruit with moderate density made me think this was from Gevrey 1er. Clearly ripe but very charming and accessible, this 2009 is easy and balanced, with subtle structure coming through at the end.
Light density, pinkish ruby; somber nose of tart blueberry and orange oil, perfumed cherry; good density, sweet tannin, and some noticeable alcohol, serve a little chilled to tone down alcohol; not a real age worthy wine so you may want to enjoy its beauty now.
A little scared when the cork showed signs of seepage, but the wine was fine. Light ruby; interesting nose of ripe pinot fruit, blueberry, and slight orange oil, needed a minute to open up; the palate is rich and ripe as well with sweet tannin, dark cherry, blueberry; has the density and ripeness of a 1er almost GC; the only flaw I saw was the alcohol being a little high. New world pinot drinkers would appreciate this as well as.
