Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Denis (Isabelle et Denis) Pommier

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

The evening theme is Pinot Noir from unexpected areas.
A red Chablis, sourced from three parcels between Venoy and Chablis; one location is the Ferme de Couverte which is the hill above Vaudésir. 🦄 🍷

Nose has syrupy kirsch, very ripe cherry, very ripe black currant and moist limestone. Incredibly fruity, reminiscent of many Oregon wines, on the edge of being too much fruit. 🍒💣(Can't believe I'm writing that!)

Palate has super sweet ripe cherry, brambly-stemmy notes are well integrated, acidity is sharp but soft edges.

I'm completely caught off guard by this bottle. Yet, I should have known that the Chardonnay masters in Chablis would have just done an amazing job with Pinot Noir grown in the same conditions. Damn it, I barely bought any of this and that was my mistake, plus 2016! What was I thinking? Won't under commit to this wine in the future, perfect sipper and very accessible.

Love it. Just so nice to enjoy a bottle when you can just open it, pour it and drink it. Last Friday of Lent so another meatless meal. — 7 days ago

Cherry, raspberry, iron, earth, rose petals a bit of barnyard at first. Is that orange peel too lingering in there. Easy going, no secondary, no tertiary, plain simple and efficient nose. The palate is acid driven with raspberry and cherry all along and some tannins coming in the rear to give a nice mouth feel and an impression of chewing it. The finish is delicate with fruits and rose. Not grand, not overwhelming, not showing off but a delicate, well crafted burgundy which plays above its league. — 4 days ago

Cuvée de Pressonnier Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2005

This comes from a single plot that was part of Gevrey-Chambertin until 1964. Some of the vines on property date back to 1925. The structure is alive and well. Wine is in a really good spot. — a day ago

Guys night out at The Tasting Room.
.
A very sexy and supple Bourgogne rouge with plenty of fruit, yes, but also loads of earth/minerals/menthol/cherry tobacco.
