Burghound and 2011 Burgundy. Chase away those election blues

Burghound 2011 Burgundy

"From an overall quality perspective, I would go so far as to say that out of the triumvirate of 2009, 2010 and 2011 that 2009 is in third place, 2011 in second and 2010 is in first." Burghound Issue 49


2011 Burgundies are about to start arriving in force. Coming after 2009 and 2010 is probably the one false step the vintage has made. 2011 is a lovely vintage with correct ripeness, relatively low alcohol and great precision. 


Burghound states "I find to be the most intriguing is just how good the phenolic maturities are yet the sugar maturities are remarkably low, in fact 2011 is one of the lower alcohol vintages in some time. This makes for seductively suave textures that avoid any sense of heaviness as there is good freshness and sufficient acid verve to maintain the finishing balance. This seductive character is further enhanced by the fact that not only are the supporting tannins ripe but they are exceptionally fine-grained; indeed this is one characteristic that both 2011 and 2010 share."

Chateau Beauchene Cotes-du-Rhone Grande Reserve Rouge 2011
A blend of 60% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 10% Carignan and 3% Cinsault.
Wine and Spirit Magazine:

The lushness of this wine's purple plum fruit quickly overcomes the scent of oak; a bit of white pepper spice and vibrant acidity join in to add freshness and lift. Off of 30- to 50-year-old-vines in Orange, it's hedonistic, a match for suckling pig. 90 Points
