2008 Chanson Pere et Fils Red Burgundy: Good body but not as flavorful as we'd like

we went to the tulip bistro and bar in lexington, ky. it's a french restaurant with a southern flair, and the chef suggested this pinot noir, which he said had enough body to match greg's lamb shank and my pork loins. the food was very tasty, and this was a wine with a good texture, but it really lacked flavor and was fairly bland, in fact. that said, it lacked the acidity of many pinot noir and so was easily drinkable (we're not big fans of acidic wines.) i'm not sure the wine was perfectly matched with either of our dishes. wouldn't get it again. 12.5 percent alcohol.
