2005 Louis Jadot Pinot Noir Bourgogne
Given a hint by a friend to open this wine and let set for 20 minutes. Right. I tried as soon as I opened and was overtaken by the earthly taste so yes I waited. Once able to breath this wine had a huge cherry aroma and was very silky smooth (hard to believe 20 minutes decantered made a big difference). Still earthy after 20 minutes I found my first french pinot enjoyable. Price appropriate at 15.99.
