Bourgogne 2015 Patrice Rion

There is plenty of the 2015 vintage out now. A vintage that has received great reviews both in Bordeaux and Burgundy. In great vintages like this it is the opportune moment to buy some of the lower graded wines such as a generic Burgundy or second labels from Bordeaux. This Bourgogne Pinot Noir by Patrice Rion was beautiful balanced with som firm but soft tannins. Great nose of red fruit with hints of chocolate and pepper tones. A very good Bourgogne rouge indeed. But it does not come cheap but is still half the price of a village wine. Bourgogne PN 2015 Patrice Rion 270 NOK or 20€

Beaujolais 2017

The 2017 vintage is now out from certain regions, Beaujolais being one of them. And nothing is better than a chilled Gamay on a warm and sunny day. The quality from the region is on a rise and there are many old and new "managers" that are searching quality based on the Gamay grape. Jean Paul Brun is one of those making wine old style Beaujolais, i.e Burgundy method. The colour is wonderful purple red. The nose filled with red fresh summer fruit, redcurrant, raspberries etc. The taste is also refreshing with great acidity and medium soft tannins. Delightful stuff. Reasonable priced and good value for money. Beaujolais Le Ronsay 2017 Jean Paul Brun ca 170 NOK or 8€
