A bit reduced, tight and off-balance. Barrel nose and annoyed palate. After it got some air it started behaving and treated me to some classic red Beaune — luscious, tender, velvety yet lean and angular at times. Was perfect with guinea hen topped with foie gras, smoked bacon, some soy and acacia honey glaze. #aitfrance #lapremiere

I love Burgundy and this is a delicious Beaune. Enjoyed it with smoked haddock gratin where it just came alive and was a beautiful pairing going down rather well with our friends.

Subtitle and elegant with cranberry, baking spice, forest floor. So good with mushroom risotto and herbs! #pinotnoir #beaune #2011 #burgundy #sommlife

Smokey wet bark aroma, with a touch of vanilla sweetness in back. Dark cherry, dry raspberry and a touch of grit on the palate. Even a touch of tannin lingering.

Young and tight but after some time showing some cranberry, dark cherry, smoke, dirt and dried orange peel.

Earthy, nice acids ; darker and more brooding.
