Darviot-Perrin Bourgogne Rouge 2007

I'm home alone tonight with some tasty left-over roast beef that I'm eating with a bottle of 2007 Bourgogne Rouge from Domaine Darviot-Perrin.  I'm so glad I popped the cork on this one tonight; it's simple, fresh, very tasty with lovely, crunchy red cherry fruit to the fore.  It's really long and very moreish.  It's a lovely straight-ahead Bourgogne Rouge that wants drinking now so you can enjoy it in its delicious youth before it closes us.  Get some if you can.

  1. [...] The Bourgogne Rouge by contrast was a stonker.  It really showed how good a straight-ahead Bourgogne Rouge can be.  With no aspirations to turn into a complex older wine, it made a great comparison to the Sancerre Rouge, which is also a wine made to be drunk young.  Unfortunately for the Sancerre however there was very little comparison; the moreish, long and delicious Bourgogne Rouge was in a different class. I’ve already posted about this wine when I had a bottle for supper the other night, which you can find here. [...]
