pavillon 2009 volnay 1er les santenots

Update 20.10.2011(19.10.2011)billn


2009 Domaine du Pavillon, Volnay 1er Les Santenots
Medium-plus colour. Deep, dark fruit with floral top notes and a hint of mineral – limited width but great top to bottom dimension. Full, rounded and quite sensuous; not too sweet and there is good buffering acidity. Dark fruit tones and a velvet tannin that you have to search for. Long lasting on a mineral note. More challenging than the Bouchard ‘baby Jesus’ today and a better wine for it – the future can look after itself. Super wine and something of a bargain.
Rebuy – Yes

And two fun things:

Is Keith having a joke at the expense of Alice ? 😉

Plus cartoon of the week!

    Read on ! Keith’s ‘Devil’s Dictionary’ is grand. I was particularly taken by the entry for ‘Auction’.

    Thanks for leading me there.
