01 Meo-Camuzet, Richebourg Grand Cru

This is pornographic pinot noir. It's heavy, decadent, but nonetheless spry--an upside down pyramid of sensations. The nose justifies cost. Whatever esoteric metaphors the wine conjures--I keep thinking of tying a cherry stem with my tongue--it is not to be lost in its talk. The point of all this--the perfect aroma; the layered tastes of cherry, raspberry, red currants, chocolate, and toasted walnuts; and the moving balance of sweet fruit, acid, and unfiltered creaminess--is simply to enjoy pinot. The Meo-Camuzet is not a hard wine, not like Romanee-Conti--in fact, it resembles ripe California pinot noir at its core and the finish is unduly short. But it makes me want to surrender. Thank you, Michael.

The ingredients speak for themselves. Wine, as a classic drink is making my mind go nuts. I started drinking when I was young and I have never experienced drinking a great wine.This will be the first. And i am excited to let it in my system.
