Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Domaine Duroche

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015

Nose has juiced ripe cherries, wet cedar, roses, dry garden soil and faint strawberry jam.

Palate has bright cherry fruit, elderberry jelly, ripe cranberry, wet leather and faint tobacco notes. Great acidity and long finish.

Decanted 5H, this is in the zone now for sure.

Paired with a local whole chicken, 24H brine, Asian style spice rub, cooked on my grill rotisserie with apple wood chips smoking away for about 75m. Potatoes, onions and root vegetables in the roasting pan beneath to catch all the drippings. Crispy skin on the bird and good smoke flavor/penetration in the meat. A great reward for laboring away in the yard and garden all weekend.

Выпито у Вадима Гитлина вечером 06.06.21 после визита в Пильницу семьи Ботеновских. Дома выпили 3 бутылки разных новозеландских совиньон бланов , а затем я рванул в гости к Вадиму. Ему этот молодой пино нуар 2019 года весьма понравился - видимо , это вообще его сорт винограда. Мне - спокойно. Очень хорошо поговорили по бизнесу. — 13 days ago

Always a value and in 19 a superstar value. Deep, penetrating nose. Huge black cherry, dark red cherry, cherry skin, backed up by unreal minerality. So clear and deep. Much more serious than the Cabottes. Spice and earth. The full Burgundian symphony. Such a sappy nose. 9.4 nose. Just brilliant! Wow, what concentration and purity. Unreal. So sappy and pure but so fresh. Insane tiny berry fruit intensity. So so good. Structured as well and seems slightly clipped on the back end for now. But air will surely cure that. As I just took a sip the finish is extending and expanding as is the back palate and that gamey note comes through. Best version of this ever. A benchmark. — 3 days ago

What fruit! Stanky red and black cherries. Great clarity and so vivid. Stunning Cabottes. Great tangy black cherry fruit and terrific intensity and purity. Really clear vivid fruit. Nose also has gorgeous florals and earth. 19 reds rock. Such freshness and volume. Sweet and ripe tannins. Seriously great value burg here. Awesome gamey element coming through with air. — 3 days ago

Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Pinot Noir 2018

Still loving this simple Pinot. We paired it with a (very) hot and spicy turkey and rice dish and it held its ground brilliantly. Superb cherry nose with a tiny touch of iron and hay, nice lower acid palate with a vibrant cherry note and a soft mouthfeel. Very gentle tannins before a long cherry finish. Simple yet delicious — 20 days ago

La Taupe Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2019

Very fruitforward with (stewed) red fruit & blueberries, moist undergrowth and a whiff of herbs. Not shy at all yet retaining good freshness.
Starts quite soft & mellow on the palate, with the fine tannins framing the juicy fruit and a mineral, graphite note underlining the whole.
Good depth & character, would prefer a bit more lightness of touch.
An excellent Bourgogne Rouge nonetheless.

Good note! I'm a little surprised about the name though, la taupe translates into the mole. Curious name if you ask me 😊!
