2 bourgognes, 5 for germany (so far…)

Update 15.7.2014(8.7.2014)billn

The dream has gone for Brasil – I’m not even sure I’ll stay up to watch the second half of the football – but I’ve two bottles open, so… 😉

2011 de Villaine, Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise La Digoine
Good colour. Hmm – not such a good nose – pyrazine and a round, diffuse, herby warmth. Good texture and quite good concentration. There’s a little pyrazine in the flavour too though the finish is quite good. Honestly, I’ve no interest in taking a second glass. Day 2 (overnight in the fridge) and I can’t detect anything nasty – indeed it smells and tastes rather pretty…
Rebuy – No

2009 Buisson-Charles, Bourgogne Pinot Noir
Also a good, deep colour. The nose has plenty of ripeness but develops a freshness of cooked summer fruit. This is rather concentrated and the texture is a good-deal silkier than the 2011. Nice mid-palate and finishing freshness. A very good Bourgogne.
Rebuy – Yes

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Disaster for Brazil. Luckily you’re having a MUCH better evening!!!

    That’s always been my reaction to La Digoine, in whatever vintage. It gets much better with age but on balance it’s not worth the bother.
