The quest for the ultimate bottle. The Holy Grail. The continued crusade to find that perfect bottle. My dream, my quest, my crusade, my……job! I have come very close several times. I have enjoyed this quest, oh the Bordeaux, Rioja, Cabernet, Brunello, Merlot and the list goes on, that I have enjoyed in this quest. Oh pity me, always in the search for perfection.
Today I have come very close. Domaine des Perdrix, Nuits-Saint-Georges is very close to that perfection. I know, I know I have said it before-and I will say it again. But at this time-at this moment- this is about as good as it gets.
Domaine des Perdrix is a premier cru, Nuits-St-Georges, the a sub-region of Burgundy. Small in comparison to domestic vineyards, these few acres produce some of the best wines in the world.
The fragrance of violets and cherries emanates from the opened bottle. The beautiful bouquet lulls you into nirvana.
The luscious-delicious juice erupts in the mouth. Layer upon layer of flavor invades the senses. Dark black cherry flavors touched with a smokiness meld into the long silky finish. An earthiness that is typical of Burgundy makes the finishing touch.
Lovely, Beautiful, delicious. What can I say, just a Fantastic wine.
Just look at that. Just looking at it and you know – you know what is coming!!!!
