Community Tasting Note

    September 29, 2015 - Took this a while to start to taste like a Burgundy. A while longer to start to show itself as a Fourrier. Started out as a dead-ringer for a young OR pinot. A little bit of white pepper, and some noticeable tannins initially. Eventually rounds out to a quite fruity and delicious Burgundy of decent complexity. This one was opened in the name of science; wait at least three years before diving in again.
