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.

It's way better the next day. You should look for it at a better price though. We pick it up for $8 in Maryland.

Actually I had some left over the next day and did try it and it wasn't "way better" although it was a "little" better. $8 is certainly a more fair price for the quality of the wine (Unless I happened to get a bottle that was corked just ever so subtly to where it wasn't obvious.) One thing is certain, I won't be paying again what I paid for it anytime soon. Thanks Oenophile!

i agree with you. quite flat. not worth its money and definitely very little to do with pinot noir.
