Pretty much consistent with my last notes - liked the 2013 Rossignol-Trapet Gevrey VV, even though it isn't the kind of Pinot profile I typically would. Black-fruited bouquet that appears a little sweeter than I remember, with an intriguing earthy Oolong tea-like note and hints of smoked meat. The palate's very smooth and supple at the moment, which gives it an impression of weightlessness even though the flavours are far from it. The saline, tangy core is particularly enjoyable, although the finish is somewhat short. Delicious with chicken tacos. — 18 days ago
