Maison Albert Bichot Savigny-Les-Beane Rouge  2014, Burgundy France 

My Rating 81 Points.   

Price $25.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Light nose of raspberries, strawberries, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Tart on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, earth, forest floor, smoke, green pepper and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This 100% Pinot Noir is simple and too sour for me. Earthy and tart, with a thin mouthfeel.
Better with food, though. I paired it with flank steak, and surprisingly, it was good.

13% alcohol by volume.
