Albert Bichot Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir Bourgogne 2007

Albert Bichot Vieilles Vignes 2007 Pinot, $12.99-$16.99, 89 points,
is a bright-crystal clear ruby red color, the nose is 
a beautiful mature cherry with hints of cooking 
spice, the mouth-feel is acidic and cheek-
smacking, tannin is present (Perfect with my homemade beef stew), and the flavor, though one 
dimensional, is bright and fresh, with tart cherry that 
is wrapped in a light-body, and finishes fairly long
with tart-spicy cran-cherry. This is another value 
Pinot Noir, but this one is French, and if their 
value Pinots are this good, I'll be looking for something steeper to sample.

  1. Dennis, masterful photo for this one. The cork board is a really nice touch. Loving the sound of a cran-cherry finish. Do you reckon this was the best year for this particular wine?

  2. Thanks, Ben.
    Cellar Tracker has the 2006 2 points better than their score of 84.1 for the 2007; as you can see I liked this wine almost 5 points more on the average than this group of people, although one of their reviewers (bbrantley) had the same score. Cellar Tracker gives individual scores and calculates a group score.
