Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru, France, Pinot Noir, Red Wine

Wine #3 with sushi and second Grand Cru Burgundy in as many weeks. What am I doing? This one was certainly worth it. Very powerful red Burgundy that shows cherry and red berries, leather, earth, leafy flavors, pepper, and a touch of greenness. In my opinion, the green streak in this wine was very minimal, and I thought it actually enhanced the wine’s complexity. That said, I also love Chinon, so bear that in mind to benchmark your palate to mine. Just a pleasure to drink this, and it was a great wine to finish our sushi night off with. Again, I wish I had more of this, but it was my last bottle.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
