Joseph Drouhin Vero Pinot Noir 2006
from Burgundy, France
Pretty red color, with bright ruby tones. Very pleasant bouquet reminiscent of cherry and ripe raspberry, with a peppery note in the background. Good balance with pleasant roundness and freshness; supple and refined tannic structure.
On the palate, flavors of wild blackberries and raspberries dominate, with some undertones of licorice. After a little more aeration, there is a round and harmonious sensation as the wine then evolves towards all kinds of delicious red berry flavors. It can be called the perfect example of a classic Red Burgundy, as it exemplifies the elegance of Volnay, the subtlety of aromas of the Hautes Côtes, the seductive red berry flavors of Chorey-les-Beaune or Rully, and the charm and structure of Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey Chambertin.
Véro Pinot Noir, with its refined tannins, can be enjoyed by itself as an aperitif, or with any kind of grilled meat (beef, veal, lamb, duck), or grilled salmon. It also complements cow's milk cheeses.

This is a nice balanced Pinot Noir. The fruit is expressive of black raspberries, and a little tartness of royal anne cherries. The acids and tannins are under control. Good value for the price.
