Dark and quite full bodied with a relatively muted nose with a earthy dark cherry notes finally emerging after sometime in the glass. Quite refined and polished with dark fruits, oak, cherry, and spice combining well. Overall, this is quite a good choice for an for early drinking burgundy. On the downside its a bit one dimensional and it lacks a bit of definition (tannins and minerality are almost absent). This seems like a burgundy built for the US export market? Fair QPR at $29.
Nicolas Rossignol's 2011s (Bistro 7 (7 N. 3rd St., Philadelphia)): This is a real classy wine that stands up to wines 2x (and more) its price. Fruit, fragrant. Plenty of red raspberry, fruit and berries. Terrific clean acidity. Great stuffing here. Drinking really well right now but could stand a few years of cellar time to really come into its own. Even after going back and tasting this at the end of the night, it still brough the goods and stood up to some more expensive wines.
