I’m not going to attempt a wine review, for this Burgundy, using a few standard words borrowed from a wine reviewers notebook.
Anyone who is a lover of a really good red Burgundy knows why they are in such demand, why there is no reason to “sell” them to the reader, and why they cost what they cost. I’m always in sticker shock when I buy a nice Burgundy to store away in the cellar, but then down the road, when I drink the wine, I realize I made a wise investment.
Here is what I’ll say about this wine: Soft, relaxed…..divine. This wine came from pampered grapes. The marriage of this Burgundy to the succulent and crisp edges of a cut of juicy roast beef is one that will last forever.
There now……I hope I haven’t made the yorkshire pudding and gravy jealous.
