TN: 2007 Weingut Michlits Pinot Noir Burgenland 07 (Austria, Burgenland)

  • 2007 Weingut Michlits Pinot Noir Burgenland 07 - Austria, Burgenland (7/23/2009)
    Lovely dinner at Elaine’s in Chapel Hill. I’ve never had an Austrian Pinot. Darker than I figured. Nose of bright, bright cherries, quite lovely. Tart flavors, a little meaty, light-medium bodied, bright spicy cherry and strawberry. Minimal tannins. Organic producer, 14% alcohol, I think about $20 retail. After this and having tried a taste of a surprisingly big Pinot/Gamay from Switzerland on Monday night (the Robert Gilliard Dole des Monts 2006) I’m starting to forget the really crappy German Pinot’s I’ve had. (89 pts.)

(Upgraded from 87 to 89 as it opens up and fleshes out while having a glass sitting at home with the remains)

They also make a really tasty frizzante Rose of Pinot Noir. About $18 or so.

Actually that is what CellarTracker insists I drank! There is no existing listing for this wine and it keeps changing “red” to “pink” and “sparkling”. Eric I’ve got the bottle right here! It really, really is a Pinot!
