Bourgogne Hautes-Cotes de Nuits

blog 82

An attractive bottle from a well respected producer, Bouchard Aine & Fils. Carrying the Tesco finest label, currently reduced to £9.60. Pinot Noir is my favourite red wine grape, so my hopes were high… This was good wine for the price but when it reverts to £12? I’m not sure…

 

Tasting notes: Light, soft tannins. Good summer drinking. Some spice and a good length of finish. My only reservation was a slightly thin mouthfeel.
