Bourgogne 2007, Bitouzet-Prieur

Blind-tasted by Tom and Rameet. Ruby colour possibly red spinelle. Rose petals, violets, I like this. I'm getting dairy. Don't be an idiot thats the cheese plate. It is lovely though. A bit of spice. Sexy, you want to drink it. I get strawberries, blackberry, hint of blueberry. Yes, ripe blueberry. Bready. Yeast. I agree there is something creamy. A bit of clove. Spice, pepper. Sharper red fruits on the palate. Red currants. Medium acidity or higher. Lots of red fruit. Medium plus length. Some black pepper. Yes, the spice. Could be kept longer. Still developing. A bit of tobacco on the nose. Sweet tobacco. I'd go for a case of this. Yes, I agree. I'd say this is premier cru. How much oak? A little bit, just right. Its an older wine so the oak. Wrong, its still ruby. I think this is 2005 or 2007. It still has further to go. A bit of cranberry on the palate. OK, 2007 it is. This is not a village wine. A premier cru or above. I don't think its a Volnay? Its quite a deep colour. What about a Pommard? Lets go for a Volnay 2007 premier cru. Whatever it is its lovely!
