Hugues & Yves de Suremain "Les Sazenay" Premier Cru 1999

Member Review by ChipDWood:

This is an enjoyable and affordable example from a solid year in Mercurey. This Pinot opened after about a twenty minute breath. A lively ruby color and a nose of cherries with a tinge of ash. Medium bodied on the palate and composed of healthy and well-rounded (if not opulent) red fruits, the finish lingers pleasantly & gently thanks both to its well-integrated tannins as well as its time laid down. It's well composed and currently drinking at its peak. In total I gave this an "88", and would recommend it if you see it for south of $30. As is most any Pinot, this one went beautifully with a nicely grilled set of lamb chops and a healthy helping of Moussaka- my new favorite, Mediterranean, creamy, "béchamel-y", decadent as-all-get-out partner for medium - full bodied reds.
