Domaine Jean-Marc Pavelot Les Bressandes Beaune 1er Cru 2007, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France

This Pinot Noir poors a dull, opaque ruby in color and opened up with aromas of dark plum, black cherry, black tea, dried flowers, damp earth, saddle leather and smoky notes. On the palate, medium bodied, dry earthy and rustic mouthfeel with low acidity and woodsy tannins. This Pinot Noir finish is short with oak dominated flavours. This is really not my style of Pinot Noir, seriously lacking finesse and too oaky for me. Not something I would want to revisit, score 87 point.

Purchased February 2011 LCBO Vintages Classic Collection (206219) at $45.00
