This light to mid-weight pinot is evolving into prime time with a pleasant gentle forest earthiness evolving around...

I had heard good things about this Pinot Noir - it's from a good vintage and an appellation that has started to outperform expectations. And I must say it didn't disappoint.
Being new to the world of wine, I don't have a lot of experience with Burgundy offerings. But I've had good and I've had bad, and I think this is very good.
The aroma is subtle, not overpowering, which I like. Taste wise, it's not very fruity, but still has a fulfilling amount of cherry flavour. This seems more earth dominant.
As for tannins, I guess I would describe them as breezy, except if you suck in some oxygen with the wine, then the tannins explode across the tongue.
This is a very pretty wine to look at and drink. It's what I've come to expect when I drink a red from Burgundy.
It paired well with the coq au vin we had for dinner, which you would seem obvious.

2011 Vintage - Light bodied, clean and crisp. Well made, but lacks personality...easy drinking and precise.

Fairly primary on the nose and palate. Nicely quaffable, but lacking interest.
