drouhin laforet bourgogne
2005 Joseph Drouhin, Laforet Bourgogne Pinot Noirtry to find this wine...
Bright medium cherry-red with a trace of purple. The nose is like a bowl of fresh cherries, a little tart and high-toned with just a faint edge of garden mint. The palate shows plenty of freshness and an unexpected intensity in the mid-palate. The texture is good and tannin only shows as transient rasp on the tongue before a almost good finish. In any other vintage this would be a great bourgogne, in 2005 it is ‘merely’ well above average – and did I mention the value – it’s only around €10.
Rebuy – Yes

    I stumbled on this a few days ago, priced less than the equivalent of your fine value. You called this very accurately. A nice slurp with a little something more to it. Not quite in the league of the other 05 Bourgogne I have tried, the Rapet En Bully but at 50% less cost no apologies necessary.

    Thanks for the call.
