    Default [TN] '05 Brun Fleurie

    Today, Andrew spent the afternoon at a local amusement park with a
    friend's family. Taking advantage of his absence, we decided to cook a
    more elaborate dinner, which tonight consisted of rabbit in mustard
    sauce, gratin Dauphinoise and sauteed kale. With this meal, we opened:

    2005 Dom. de la Terre Dorees Fleurie
    nose: initially, tight and briery; with air, dark cherries and
    minerality with a slight floral overtone
    palate: initially, chalky tannins; with air, very smooth and
    medium-light body

    Some guy with the nym of DaleW posted a note on Cellartracker 4 years
    ago talking about how tight and closed in this wine was. Well, it still
    is a bit tight and youthful, but after an initial taste we decanted half
    the bottle and gave it a lot of aeration. Although the wine still tasted
    a bit tight even after the aeration, when paired with the rabbit it was
    transformed into a fruit, smooth wine. One of the better food/wine
    pairings I've had in recent months, this one really worked.

    I really like the Brun Beauolais but can't get it in New Mexico. May try to see if they have it in Texas.
