No. No. No. Tart and acidic is okay for me, old world style on Pinot Noir I can also appreciate. We sensed what they were going for here, but we both thought the wine just tasted lazy and watered down. The bottle wasn't bad, but the wine was...(we had 2 and they both were the same)
lighter and fruitier than other burgandy's i've had but went well with surf and turf finished with sage cream and grilled veg. good value for the cash.
Fruit-forward, tomato, cherries, wood, tamarind, radish
pale lemon color; lemon citrus, mineral, green apple, slight floral and mint notes; medium bodied, fresh and powerful with solid acidity and a long finish
Accurate for a burgundian Pino Noir. Very weak compared to the bold US grapes. This old world-style, delicately flavored bottle was fruity, acidic with a raspberry spice finish. Gentle and appropriate for white meat; a decent choice for every day delicate red.
Semi-clear, dark garnet, showing slight signs of age around the edges. Redcurrant and wild cherry seized me by the nose, with a third note soon joining the fray that made me think rhubarb despite my never having tasted it outside of a pie (and with strawberries). Make of that what you will. Dry on the palate, with expanding fruit flavors and a long finish of raspberry and woody spice. Light-mid-bodied, easy to drink and generally well-balanced. Good, but I guess I'm just not a fan of the style.
Tried two bottles; both were very thin as well as tart and acidic. Barely recognizable as Pinot Noir, which I love and drink regularly.

Deep garnet. Pronounced spicy floral notes can be found on the nose and on tasting we have a wine which is...
Lovely ruby in color, Marsannay 2007 clearly expresses red fruit aromas. The nose is also infused with menthol, which contributes great freshness. In the mouth, this wine is complex, with lots of substance and good persistence. Pleasant to taste now, while possessing great structure for cellaring. Tasted July 8th, 2009.
