Moillard 2004 Bourgogne Pinot Noir Tradition ($15.00)
This is a clear, ruby-color wine, on the light side as is typical of Bourgogne Pinot Noir. Fresh, bright and clean, aromas focus on ripe red cherries. Crisp and tart on the palate, juicy red fruit gains structure from snappy acidity and perceptible tannins. Simple but appealing, good basic Burgundy; rather sharp acidity goes well with food, though some will find it a bit tart for sipping alone. US Importer: USA Wine Imports Inc., NYC. (Aug 3, 2006)
FOOD MATCH: This versatile food wine will go with a wide range of dishes from red meat or poultry to mushrooms and cheese dishes. I couldn't have asked for a better match with fresh wild Alaskan sockeye salmon grilled with onions.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
