Berry Bros. & Rudd Extra Ordinary Red Burgundy 2009

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

Vintage: 2009
Type: Pinot Noir
Country: France – Burgundy

Hosted on Fotki

Berry’s team of experts were behind this beautiful Pinot Noir from the Bourgogne. Berry’s website describes this wine as intense, perfumed and pretty. I would agree. Save this bottle for a nicer meal at home, for example, when serving a rotisserie chicken with dressed vegetables. When I drink this wine, I can imagine myself dining al fresco on a tiled patio of a Chateau, overlooking the rolling hills covered in vineyards. It’s a lovely wine.

Technical Review

Clear, light Ruby.

Clean, with aroma characteristics of raspberry and vanilla.

High acidity, with flavour characteristics of raspberry, strawberry and cherry. Light body, light tannins but a long finish.


Berry Bros. & Rudd Berry’s Own Selection Pomerol 2009

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Vintage: 2009
Type: Red Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Pomerol – Château Feytit-Clinet

Another excellent wine Berry’s. The Pomerol is full of blackberries and dark fruit with a full body and excellent finish.  Good value for money and will age well for a few more years.

Technical Review

Deep purple

Clean, pronounced notes of blackberries, black fruits a bit of plum and spice

Dry, medium acidity, high tannins, full body with lots of black fruit and a bit of oak.  Medium finish

Very good especially for the price point

Berry Bros. & Rudd Extra Ordinary White 2007

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Vintage: 2007
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Graves

This bottle was a free gift  after buying a case of extraordinary Claret (this is what English people call any red wines from the Bordeaux region!) from Berry Brothers. It was a nice Sauvignon Blanc. Unfortunately, I did not take very detailed notes at the time of tasting, so you will not see my technical analysis here, but I recall the wine having the following characteristics:

Dry, high acidity, light bodied, with flavours of citrus zest and tropical fruits. Very good.

I promise, if I receive another bottle of this decent white Bordeaux, I will detail its appearance, nose and palate characteristics! Remember to chill it. It would go well with any fresh summer salad.
