Who would have thought that Pinot Noir (or when the opportunity arises red burgundy) like the above wine I drank last night (2005 vintage in fact) would be such a great match with duck. One day I will delve into the history books and find out when this great food-wine match was first thought up.
Domain Fourrier is one of my favorite burgundy producers and it seems year after year they keep lifting the bar in regards to quality. This wine, just a standard village red burgundy was ethereal, with silky smooth tannin’s and so much complexity woven into every glass. It is still quite primary and I will be leaving the remaining bottles for a few years before looking at them again. Hooray for Friday nights….
