Mestre Maranges Burgundy 2013

Mestre Pere et Fils, AOC/AOP Maranges, Burgundy, France, 2013

This wine: varietal pinot noir, hand harvested, matured in oak, agglomerate Diam 5 cork closure, 13% abv, ex-producer €12.50 (2015)

Consumer tasting note: a deftly oaked pinot noir, lightweight in the mouth but showing some character with a dried herb and dried red berry dimension, along with the usual red berries. A decent length and fresh red berry finish.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance: clear and bright, pale intensity garnet, showing tears.

Nose: clean, medium (+) intensity, developing, with aromas as they come, of slightly high-toned bright red cherry, low-key toast, cranberry, red currant, a little spice, with hints of dried herbs and dried red berries.

Palate: dry, medium (+) acidity, medium ripe tannins, medium (+) alcohol, medium (-) body, medium intensity, with flavours of red cherry, cranberry, red currant, very low-key oak and spice. A medium (+) length with a clean red berried finish.

Quality: a good quality wine, balanced acidity with fruit, with which alcohol is in harmony, neither notably complex nor concentrated, but with a decent length and a fresh pleasing finish.

Readiness for drinking/ageing potential: drink now, not suitable for further ageing, though it will keep for a year or so.
