Monthelie 2005, a rebellious Pinot Noir
Pierre Morey 2005 Monthelie - (Monthelie is located in the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy in between Volnay and Meursault.) In my own view I don't find this Monthelie as being supple delicate or elegant as some of the cliche tasting notes (from some fantasy world) describe it. Instead I see a very rustic expression of Pinot Noir. A well made wine, with a rebellious edge to it and showing off a unique terroir with earth, gravel, healthy fruit and chalky tannin. For me that's where the enjoyment came from drinking this wine. An escape from your everyday expectations of Pinot Noir from Burgundy.
