Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle!

Nose has bright spring cherry (supermarket not farmers market) and a tinge of alcohol.
Palate has gravel-cherry, sweet, this started quite tannic but mellowed a bit in the decanter (2Hr). Drinking quite nice for an everyday Pinot, not overly complicated, but enjoyable.

A good pairing with Spaghetti Squash lasagna tonight, with our homemade tomato sauce. (A fun dish with heavily roasted squash, but we still need to fine tune the reduction of its liquid. The Squash has a lot of moisture, and we need to get more out on future versions. Third time is the charm, right?)

Great for its price. Brighter than I expected but also more tannin than expected!

Just opening and decanting now, sticking with Burgundy again tonight. As it happens we had another Jadot (Dom. Gagey) bottle in the cellar, thought the Ladoix blanc was the only one previously.

Palate is gravel-cherry, sweet, this started quite tannic but mellowed a bit in the decanter. Drinking quite nice for an everyday Pinot, not overly complicated, but enjoyable. I'd say this bottle could hold easily for 6 years past vintage.

A good pairing with burgers hot off the grill tonight. Burgers are an interesting meal at our house, cats seem to like the aroma, so if you're not watching, paws will be sneaking up on your plate from an adjacent chair. 😺😼😺😼

24hr Update: Acidity had mellowed, I enjoyed the wine a little more after 3-4 hours of air than today, but was a great pairing with grilled pork chops tonight.

This crunchy, bright, delicious Burgundy comes from vines north of Marsannay, mostly planted in the 1950's. It was fantastic with our Sunday roast chicken!

Really enjoyed this bottle. The only downside was we were drinking this on January 6, 2021.
