Moillard 2004 Bourgogne Pinot Noir Tradition ($15.00)
Clear ruby, not overly dark. Fresh and delicate aromas focus on red fruit with fresh herbs in the background, whiffs of tarragon and thyme. On the palate it's crisp, light-bodied but concentrated; red-berry and tart cherry flavors, distinctly acidic, with subtle earthy notes joining the choir in a long finish. US Importer: USA Wine Imports Inc., NYC. (Feb 14, 2007)

FOOD MATCH: Beef is a classic pairing with Burgundy, and pan-seared grass-fed Green River Kentucky rib eye steaks made a perfect companion.



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.
