The risky business of what to open after a Grand Cru burgundy.
16 April 2016
With the Burgundy finished Australian pinot once again became a discussion point.
Why do we get it so wrong so often?
Curly Flat is the rare exception.
Clearly inebriated, it suddenly seemed an excellent idea to open a half bottle of 2013 to make the comparison.
1999 Corton Grand Cru v 2013 Macedon Pinot.
It seemed reasonable at the time....
2013 Curly Flat Pinot Noir
Strawberries, fresh herbs, rhubarb and vanilla on the nose.
Excellent mouthfeel. Heavy oak though the fruit carries it well. Vanilla, chocolate, dried strawberries and coffee.
Very good. Drink now-2020 (half bottle).
