Recently tasted: 2009 Les Montées de Saint Lay, Pinot Noir
2009 Les Montées de Saint Lay, Pinot Noir, Côtes de la Charité, Serge Dagueneau & filles
This is a juicy, attractively easy drinking Pinot Noir from the Côtes de la Charité, which used to be called the Coteaux Charitois. It has enough soft fruit – the opulence of 2009 – to be drunk by itself and is best served a little cool. It should keep easily for a couple of years but I think probably best drunk now to enjoy the youthful fruit. Another example of how consistent the wines from Serge Dagueneau & filles are.
