Old school reds

Two memorable reds recently opened and enjoyed at home.

Burgundy is made from 100% Pinot Noir in the french region of the same name. The wines are light and silky in texture which is very addictive and it has lovely aromatic qualities as well.

I decanted both of these wines which looked great and helped the wine breath which is very important with Burgundy.

2001 Tesco Finest Cotes de Nuits Villages
Quite a bit of age on this wine from my cellar.
Rich brilliant ruby red in colour with orangey fringes.
Light and crisp raspberry and cherry fruit with leather and savoury hint.
£12 Tesco

2006 Morrisons Cote de Beaune Villages

Super super wine!
Red burgundy in colour. Very aromatic lavender and rose nose with refreshing lively cherry fruit and savoury barn flavours.
£9 Morrisons

They're some good prices right there.

God save the Queen and British supermarkets.
