Blason de Bourgogne, AOC 2008

Tasted 22/12/10, recommended by Alex and Jane. Widely available UK, currently underpriced at £7 in Budgen (reduced from a very overpriced £14). Hautes-Cotes de Beaune. Not my usual 'cup of tea' but a good value everyday Burgundy. Very light cherry red colour. Nice youthful strawberry fruit nose, hint of cured ham. Quite pleasant Pinot Noir character on the palate – cherries, a short finish and dry with soft tannins. Not much evidence of oak, about ready to drink now.14 / 20
