Paul Pernot 2005 Bourgogne Pinot Noir ($15.99)
Clear bright ruby, not too dark. Distinct red-cherry scent; crisp and fresh cherry-berry fruit and an attractive strain of minerality over a light-bodied but tart acidic structure. US Importer: LDM Wines Inc., NYC; Louis/Dressner Selections. (Dec 19, 2006)

FOOD MATCH: Splendid with a classic red-meat match, locally grown lamb chops pan-seared medium rare.



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 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.
