Type:Red Wine
Varietal:Pinot Noir

Properly multi-layered and nuanced, if somewhat lacking the pedigree of its more privileged siblings. A nice, honest and ready Burgundy with a reasonable price tag. Lovely.

Region:France / Burgundy / Cote de Beaune

Quite forward aromatically. Needed 3-4 hours in decanter to align all the flavor aspects, but once there – it showed reasonable pedigree and elegance. However it feels still very young and loud. I guess another 10 years will bring out its subtle charm.

2004 Louis Jadot Beaune

Name:Beaune

Type:White Wine
Varietal:Chardonnay
Producer:Louis Jadot
Region:France / Burgundy
Alcohol:13.0%

Surprising depth for a basic wine. Age shows in the deep golden hue, but so does in the slight oxidative notes. Touch oakier than I’d like, but it did have a good balance and this direct, “no-bullshit”, delivery to it, that I can appreciate it for what it is. Wish I stashed a few more of these bottles (very reasonably priced) to pop this summer.
