Wine Blogging Wednesday - Silver Burgundy
Here's my first foray into the WBW world. I was already pretty familiar with the whites of the Macon, so I decided to try a red Burgundy from the area. No small feat! My local wine shop, Total Wine, has a nice red Burgundy selection, but not outside that golden slope. (I was happily surprised by their extensive Beaujolais choices). After nearly giving up, I spied one that fit the bill. I took home a 2005 Chateau de la Tour de L'Ange, a Bourgogne Pinot Noir, for $13.99. It was bottled at the chateau in Charnay les Macon, and is Appellation Bourgogne - Pinot Controlee. It's a 2005, very light, high acid, fruit forward. On the nose, I got a lot of strawberry. No finish to speak of, but it was a nice quaffable bottle I enjoyed with mild cheese. On their bilingual web site I learned that the wine can be drunk young or aged ten years. That's my report--cheers to all the other WBW bloggers...
