Tasted Wednesday, 06 April 2011.

2005 Nuits-Saint-George, Laboure Roi
Laithwaites A-

Red berries, currants, touch of smoke, sweet spice, wood and a bit earthy, some must. Fat acidity, really lingering, still very vibrant despite some age, mouthwatering. Well made, drinking very well.

2008 Grasshopper Rock Pinot Noir, Earnsclough Vineyard, Central Otago.
Naked Wines £17.50. A-

Much deeper in colour, dark cherry, more sweet spice, cinnamon and clove; wood and earth, almost like mulled wine? Palate is much rounder, more obvious fruit, plush and juicy. So different in style compared to the Burgundy above, but both so very drinkable.
