The soft texture and flavour were the remarkable facets of this Burgundy villages – supple texture with just a gentle bite of tannin, making very soft and easy drinking. Acidity made it refreshing, but also that serving warmer rather than cooler improved it. Flavours particularly of blueberry. As good as the NZ Pinot, Waimea, but more expensive! Even mid- to deep-garnet colour with some purple edges. Aromas of toast and red fruit (redcurrant? Or a mix of red fruit?), that develops into something “warmer” – tobacco maybe? But all subtle.
