vin biologique (FR-Bio-01)
Louis Max
21700 Nuits-Saint-Georges (Côte-d’Or)

Tasted February 3rd, 2017.

Buttery, almondy, supersmooth. Matured exemplarily at 5 years. Would put many a Meursault at shame.

Sampled with pan-fried cod and red (!) salmon. Some good bread, little vegs on the side. This is Fridays at it’s best.

This is the top of the range Burgundy of my larger local supermarket – and Ecological, too. I think the buyers have done a top job here.

Strangely enough, the 2012 and the 2015 were both present on the shelves and had identical pricing. Well, that was an easy choice…
