Matthieu de Brully Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2005
After tasting several New World Pinot Noir wines over the past month, this French version stands out for its acidity, precision and brightness of fruit. Pure Pinot fragrance at the strawberry end of the spectrum with some light floral tones. More delicacy and length than your typical New World Pinot. Doesn't try to knock you over but serves as a perfect companion for grilled salmon. This wine costs less than $15, but it delivers the goods.
