Fruity, a bit meaty, but good enough

This was a gift, I was told it had good fruit. I think this is what you want from 2000 red Burgundy.

Pommard Premier Cru Grands Epenots 2000, Pierre Morey

Quite a pale brick colour. The fruit on the nose shows some mature softness. It is quite ripe, in the style of Pinot which seems to head toward HP Sauce/Bovril aromas. This is not over-whelming so it doesn’t seem to be a problem. There is some spice to the nose as well, but it is doesn’t seem amazingly complex. The palate has soft fruit, with a reasonably bright and lively acid/tannin structure. Again, the palate isn’t so complex, but this seems like a fruity, perfectly acceptable bottle of Burgundy. Nice enough, but it is not going to set the world on fire. Time to drink.
