Community Tasting Note

  • rahulchatterjee Does not like this wine: 84 points

    June 25, 2016 - My struggle with Burgundy Pinot continues. Decent wine, but nothing to rave about. The bouquet was closed. The taste was slightly fruity. But did not find this wine offering much despite getting heavy recommednation from the wine store. I continue to struggle with Pinot Noir from Burgundy which rarely live up to the hype and price they command. Just being honest here. I am suffering from the "emperor has no clothes" syndrome where I continue to be unimpressed by the lacklustre quality of Pinot Noir from this area despite the world widely acknowledging that this is the best area for such wines.
