Delish. Merest hint of balsamic on the nose. Crunchy juicy fruit. Not super complex. But I had ribs in chile sauce for dinner so this was perfect. You need wines like this. Bought from Fass selections.

Can they make good Pinots in Irancy not the Côte de Or but quite a drive from there but still in Burgundy???? And the answer is. Yes. This wine is a little more rough but for 25$ who cares! Nice purple. Crushed blackberries. Decent morello cherry infused back palate. A little light on its feet the rating is middle of the road as I suspect this will not hold up well to storage but we will see. No vintage on the bottle.

Nice clean sappy cherry fruit on the nose. Pure and vivid. Palate is tannic and rustic with good fruit but needs food. Drying tannins.

Lovely dusty, earth and spicey nose. Good deep and pure cherry as well. Very fragrant. Palate is pure and juicy with tanginess and nice lively citrus acidity. Nice wine. Simple but very well made.

Nice Pinot noir with cherry and red berry notes. Light to medium bodied with bright acidity. Great with a light chill. Excellent value.

Lovely Classic Irancy nose. Slightly weedy in that way only Irancy can be. Red woodland berry fruit. Morello cherry. Some dust. Really nice. Even some wild flowers. Palate is rustic and charming with good fruit, if a bit drying on the finish since last time I've had it. Juicy with good acids and might be better with air. Will come back to this.

Farmhouse meets red berry fields. Softly worked with pleasant phenolic structure and floral/herbal/talc-like aromatics. Good length.
