Domaine David Clark Bourgogne Passetoutgrains 2008
Bourgogne Passetoutgrains, Domaine David Clark is made from a blend of 35%<br/>Pinot Noir and the balance Gamay. A fresh and intensely earthy nose of red and<br/>dark berry fruit aromas blends into round, rich and relatively forward flavors<br/>that possess ample character and a zesty finish... it does offer very good<br/>quality for a much maligned appellation. <br/>(Allen Meadows- burghound.com - Jan 10)
Editorial Reviews for Domaine David Clark Bourgogne Passetoutgrains
The aromatics here are a bit overly woody over a bed of stemmy, earthy, tea scented fruit. On entry this offers up nicely sweet fruit with the wood well integrated yielding a nicely balanced mid-palate with crisp tannins accentuating the subtle, vinous red fruited mid-palate. The moderately long finish showcases a nice mineral vein before finishing with a wood spiced flourish. 87pts
This lovely Burgundian wine is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Gamay. It presents a deep crimson color fading to a brilliant ruby around the edges. This is a very silky wine in the mouth with light and well integrated tannins, mouth watering and food friendly acidity with a medium body. On the nose there is a very subtle touch of freshly sliced almonds followed by tart cherries with hints of strawberry and herbs. The wine expresses flavors of tart cherries blended in harmony with a layer of subtle strawberry, rosemary and tarragon and just a hint of vanilla bean.
