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.

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.
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.
