Domaine Georges Chicotot Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chicotot family has been involved in growing wines in Nuits-St-Georges since the 16th century. A true boutique artisan estate, producing a limted number of extraordinary wines, the Chicotot family personally tends the vines, harvests the grapes and vinifies and bottles the wine. The current Chicotot, George, is a traditionalist who severly restricts his yields and does a long cool maceration so the wines are rich and dark. This red Burgundy offers fresh dark fruit and spice character with beautiful balance and a long finish.

Itrsquo;s taxing to find a fine Burgundy that features exceptional value and quality deserving of the namehellip; hold on, Chicotot has arrived. Regard deep, dark, black cherry in the glass, savor rich aromas of smoke and spice. As I lifted my glass to taste I was thinking, ldquo;One can only hopehellip;rdquo; And hope is fulfilled; Chicotot delivers mdash; a full, soft, supple core of sweet fruit. The finish lasts, strong and vibrant. An elegant wine carrying a host of pleasures.

Superbly colored, this everyday red is impeccably balanced and very vibrant in the mouth. A red you can enjoy anytime.

Seated around Monsieur Chicototrsquo;s dining room table, munching his wifersquo;s cheese starred profiteroles warm from the oven and sipping samples of his Pinot Noirs beginning with the still in barrel rsquo;02s all the way back to a 1953 Nuits-St-Georges, I enter in my notes ldquo;extracted elegant reds with fine tannins.rdquo; The 2000 Rouge has the smoky earthiness characteristic of Pinot Noirs from Burgundy along with a velvety texture, solid plum and graceful strawberry fruits and a hint of black pepper on the finish. Rustic and flavorful.
