Mission Briefing

Codename:

Burgundy Beauty

Today’s winery produces wine with the greatest respect for the traditions of Burgundy. And, they do it with elegance and style.

Today’s delicious 2011 Domaine Desertaux Ferrand is a terrific French Pinot Noir for any Burgundy fan. For drinkers of homegrown Pinot, there is plenty to love here, as well.

Drink as an aperitif or enjoy with a fine meal, this flexible wine may be enjoyed with a wide range of cuisines.

Give the wine enough time to evolve in decanter or glass - and be rewarded with more subtlety and more fruit. Enjoy now, but lay a few bottles down for the next few years for best results.

A great wine to serve with appetizers, alongside a white wine. Also great with lightly prepared poultry, duck with a cherry reduction or roasted eggplant

Tasting Profile

Look:

Brilliant and bright ruby red with a distinctive perfect clarity. When swirled, medium-thick and widely-spaced legs ring the glass.

Smell:

Classically aromatic with layers of spiced blackberry pie, blueberry, lingonberry, and rhubarb. Complex and savory notes arise with a bit a swirling including a touch of clove, dried basil, and cardomom.

Taste:

Bright and juicy at the mid-palate and the tip of the tongue. Refined, integrated tannins, provide a structure for the fruit to play on. Flavors consist of native Himalayan blackberries, wild herbs, and subtle leather.

Finish:

Very bright, clean and textured, with a dried cranberry quality. Slightly tart and lean, this wine’s limestone minerality gradually dries the palate.
