Louis Jadot 2004 Bourgogne Pinot Noir ($17.99)
Dark garnet with a clear edge. Fresh bing cherries, clean if simple fruit, gains depth from a stony mineral backdrop that's impressive for a relatively modest Bourgogne. Crisp acidity and soft but perceptible tannins provide balance. US Importer: Kobrand Corp, NYC. (Feb 11, 2007)
FOOD MATCH: A simple but credible Burgundy, it makes a fine pairing with a simple winter dinner, vegetable soup made with fresh veggies, beef shank meat and a strong beef stock.

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.

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.
