Matthieu de Brully Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2005

This Bourgogne Rouge personifies the delicate side of Pinot Noir. It's very light in color, almost pink. Sniffing the wine is like walking into a Cherry Republic store in northern Michigan--sweet, fragrant cherries on a bed of spring flowers and Pinot dirt. There is absolutely no thickness in this wine, but there is a tensile strength and a ripe finish.

On the second night, the wine tasted tired, and the cherries had given way to the earthy Pinot qualities. I would say its time for drinking has arrived.
