Bourgogne Passetoutgrain Exception Rouge Michel Lafarge 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"While the above is mostly gamay, there is quite a bit more pinot noir in evidence on both the nose and palate of the Cuvée Exception bottling. The 2009 offers up a really pretty nose of plums, sweet cranberries, woodsmoke, lovely soil tones and a bit of fresh thyme in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and rock solid at the core, with a touch of ripe tannin, fine focus and excellent length and grip on the complex finish. Attention bargain shoppers, this really offers up great price/quality rapport!...89" JG 11/10 "...It is a silky, perfumed wine with gorgeous harmony and elegance at this level..." WA 05/11 "Outstanding: A similar if slightly riper nose slides into energetic, round and utterly delicious flavors that are underpinned by slightly firmer tannins and fine length on the balanced finale. Again, a quality effort for this modest appellation...86-88" BH 04/12
