2006 nicolas potel bourgogne pinot noir: victoria liked it, greg thought it was mediocre.


jan. 24, 2010: victoria prepared cornish hens with mustard gravy via http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Roast-Chicken-with-Mustard-Thyme-Sauce-and-Green-Salad-with-Olives-239804 and roasted butternut squash risotto via http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Roasted-Butternut-Squash-Risotto-105725 and steamed broccoli.

we paired it with a 2006 nicolas potel bourgogne pinot noir, which victoria really liked but greg was not that impressed with. victoria said the nose was strongly strawberry. the flavor had mild acidity but it was nowhere as strong as the acidity in many of the california pinots we've had. but greg wasn't that enamored with it. he said it was a decent pinot, though he didn't get the strawberry nose. victoria said she would definitely get this wine again, while greg wasn't so sure.

this burgandy pinot went well with the dijon mustard gravy. they were from the same area of france, so the pairing seemed appropriate. 13 percent alcohol. purchased at varsity liquors. $20.69 with 6-bottle 10-percent discount.
