A Favorite Burgundy (for the moment)

2005 Bourgogne from Bouchard Pere and Fils. I tasted this at J. Emerson last month and picked up a couple of bottles for less than $20 each.

I almost always enjoy wine from this particular producer. This bottle had a decent fruitiness across the upper to mid-palate and was tasty just by itself. Yet, it had enough heartiness to stand up to a pan fried pork chop.

This wine definitely embodies what I think of (and, indeed want) when someone talks about Pinot Noir.
