Louis Jadot Pinot Noir Bourgogne 2005 wine review by (PB)
This wine is wondrous light purple with a pinkish rim that is truly nice to just gaze at. On opening there is a very subtle bouquet of fresh strawberry notes.
Palate is tart, bitter, chewy and nearly tasteless; other than that it's not bad...
Hoping some air would bring about a transformation a half an hour did little. Finally after nearly 2 hours it improved but was still too tart but some flavor developed although it tasted more like a Gamay than Pinot Noir. I paid $15 for this substandard wine. Yes, it is young and it would be interesting to find another bottle in a couple more years to see if time helped. But I won't buy another to lay down. Raise a glass of something else.
