Red Car - Syrah The Fight
Rich black fruits - blackberries. Smooth (low tannin) and easy to drink, very enjoyable now. Served with petit filet and mushrooms. Drink now through next year or two.
Perrot-Minot (Domaine) - Gevrey-Chambertin
First nose of cola nut, smoke, earth and red currant, forest strawberries and a hint of tart cherry. Palate is lean with easy tannin and notes of cherry and earth. Good acidity so best with food - pate or rillettes.
Dujac - Morey St-Denis
An interesting nose of earth, red currant, cherry (queue de cerise), floral (violets). Medium bodied with some black pepper notes; good acidity and a firm, if stemmy, finish.
Marquis d'Angerville - Volnay Les Fremiets 1er Cru
An elegant and earthy nose of tobacco, spice and some muted red fruits; a familiar and welcome note of "pinot funk". Medium weight with some firm and slightly dry tannins, fruit is discreet so could use some time to work itself out.
