Red
2014 Gianni Brunelli Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese

Very light red and transparent colour. Light and pleasant on the palate - red currants and cherries. Not too acidic. Doesn't have the structure or body of better vintages but nice mid week wine.

Red
2008 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds Pinot Noir

Wonderful wine, very concentrated and elegant. Cloves and spice on the nose, ripe red fruit and plums on the palate. Very balanced.

I don't have much experience with aged burgundy, but I tasted another 2008 by the same producer at a tasting earlier this year (Pommard Premier Cru Rugiens, also wonderful), and the producer thought it would keep for another 20 years. Not sure if the same would also apply to 2008 Volnay, but there's probably no rush to drink it.
