Marsannay, Les Longeroies, Domaine Charles Audoin, 2002

Well this is a lovely pinot noir and worthy of any Burgundy fan. I tasted this wine at a restaurant where it was tough to find a bottle I wanted to drink for under a hundred bucks. Frankly the wines were brutally overpriced. This fact forced me to look beyond the obvious and I discovered this beauty. Lean, mean structure and acidity combined with mouth watering  bright fruit, a delicate yet firm balance with a long bittersweet fruity-ness that all lead to a hell of a wine. Certainly it can be cellared for a few more years, but if I had more bottles I’d be drinking them now. Delicious and a great value.
