Two for the price of one!

At the weekend I drank Domaine Bernard Moreau’s 2012 Bourgogne Pinot Noir and it was just a lovely, friendly, round, ripe and concentrated wine for the label. A real beauty!

Here, a wine from Aubert and Pamela. It has a little more structure, but is built from the same basic cloth of enjoyment and round young fruit that the wine from Moreau showed. I have to say, at the risk of excluding myself from many of the best addresses, that I have rarely over the years been as wowed as most commentaries (about these wines) would suggest (I should have been!) but this is simply lovely:

2012 A et P de Villaine, Mercurey Les montots
A warm, round, ripe red-fruited nose that encourages you to take a (big) sip. Time in the glass and there’s a more herbal complexity too. Very round but nicely shaped wine, with good but not imposing structure. I’m really enjoying this wine. Very easy drinking but very tasty drinking too.
Rebuy – Yes
