It was really tricky to drink red burgundies, as it’s truly a minefield. This was the first minefield of the night. This village wine was made entirely of Pinot Noir, a very fragile and delicate grape varietal. However, there’s no stopping this grape to age properly, and even after 15 years in the bottle, this was still not ready to drink although it’s pleasant and easy, however, the tannins were not resolved at all, definitely due to the 2005 vintage character. As such, the wine contained a lot of grip, thus giving you the “brake and go” feeling when you drive an uncalibrated car, choking my palate so frequently. The most important problem with red burgundies that I faced was the “right drinking window” with integrated and melted tannins was really hard to come by.
