Back to school, back to Bourgogne

As the nights start drawing in, it's time to make the move from rosé to red and uncork some Burgundy. So, I decided to revisit a new friend...

Bourgogne, Pinot Noir, Olivier Guyot, 2010
Lovely deep colour for a bourgogne and indeed a pinot noir. Ruby red and translucent with a deep beetroot  core. Sweet vanilla and clove nose. Light palette, with crunchy acidity (just like biting into a Braeburn apple). Surprising that none of the sweetness of the nose is present on the palette. A long and savoury (?) finish with dry tannins. A good wine that improved after two hours but, for me, the palette fell short of my expectations. 2.5* 6/ 10
