Wine report.

Saturday night, We've tasted some Bourgogne at our favorite wine shop. 2 white:Chablis and Pouilly Fuisse, 3 red: Morey Saint Deni, Chassagne Montrachet(usually white wine in this area, but it red) and Fleurie(Beaujolais), and Banyuls(sweet red wine). I will write below, each tastes I've felt in the order we've tasted.

1)Chablis Premier Cru 2001(the right bottle on the left photo)
it smelt like..., what? mineral? the shop owner said it might smell like flint.
2)Pouilly Fuisse 2001(the left bottle on the left photo)
I've got a little(quite light) sweetness and honey. and light vanilla which means coming from cask wood.
3)Morey-Saint=denis 2001(the right bottle on the middle photo)
This one is great. I've smelt it before my nose is close to the glass. the color, the edge of color was a little orage.
4)Chassagne Montrachet 2001(the middle bottle on the middle photo)
usaully, white wine producing here. mais, there are less red wine, the shop owner said so. I prefer Morey-Saint-denis at this time. the smell seems closed yet. but I've got a feeling this wine can be more nicer. I wanna taste it some years later.
5)Fleurie 2001(the left bottle on the middle photo)
smell like fraises(strawberry). I've the same feeling when I taste one of Marcel Lapierre's. I like the wine like those. but this one is thicker. I've heard of that 2003 is quite hot summer, and grape got too sweetness. Perhaps that's a reason why I felt thickness. well, I don't know.
6)Banyuls(the bottle on the right photo)
sweetness, very sweet. I felt asleep.

<--- Well, This was Today morning. When it's in full bloom?
