Why I'm liking 07 Burgundy for the values
February 11, 2010
A nose of dark red fruits, pepper and a slightly earthy tar thing. The palate is medium bodied. Dark red fruits, clean smoke and an interesting earthy tarriness again. Nicel elegant acids give it backbone and structure. A bit tight, it is only an 07. Clearly has the hallmarks of a great vintage, but not so wound up it can't be enjoyed now.
Two or three more years and this one will be a winner. At $25 plus or minus retail, this wine is a great cellar candidate. As my buddy Paul the wine snob says, lesser wines of great vintages are a great value. I concur heartily. Look of these types of wines, lesser appellations of good producers from 2007 and you can afford to drink great Burgundy at a reasonable price.
Drink this Wine!
