A product of my first ever wine trip. Having done the Clos de Vougeot tour beforehand, Dad and I bought half-a-dozen Vougeot villages. Drunk 10 years later it had mellowed very well. A good example of “silkiness” that is often described about Pinot Noir tannins – it’s not a strong flavour, but it does have body with the lightness of fruit and oak. Slightly orange brown. Aromas of strawberries backed up with composty notes. Flavours of red fruit with gentle, light flavour. Went well with roast lamb (but not as well as Volnay does).
