Not really a proper note, as I can’t remember the detail of this wine, drunk on Sunday, so I won’t cheat and make one up, but it was certainly a wine worthy of highlighting…
2007 Robert-Denogent, Macon-Solutré Clos des Bertillonnes
I enlisted my helpful neighbours with this one, simply because I’d be ashamed to drink a whole magnum on my own! This wine was from an auction purchase last year – 6 well-priced magnums – the first of which was a little disappointing, the second was brilliant and this was closer to the latter than the former, if not quite so fabulous. Certainly a little bottle variation then! I’d be the first to say that wines from the Macon very often seem fuller and riper to me, without necessarily becoming flabby; this wine doesn’t fall easily into that category (the vintage?) and I’d drink it any time for it’s nice line, lovely balance a concentrated young (still!) flavours.
