Good for the price. Given the problems finding a decent Bourgogne Pinot Noir at what I consider the be a day-to-day price, I'm quite pleased with this (first of six). It's not going to come close to the great wines of the region, and is clearly lighter, but it's still got a smooth finish, the pinot flavour and texture that I expect. Not much scope for further maturity, but I can see me keeping a rolling stock of these.
Holy crappola, this is bad. Not just bad as in I don't like it, more "how the hell did they even think they should put this stuff in a bottle and sell it" kind of bad. Thin, weedy, green, mouth-puckeringly acidic and tannic with absolutely no discernible varietal characteristics whatsoever. "£15 is cheap for a Burg" says the guy in the shop. True, but it is also a lot of money for what can be best described as cooking wine. The worse thing about this is that I purchased the 2008 last year and it was just as bad. I have not learnt from my mistakes. More fool me.
