I’m home alone tonight with some tasty left-over roast beef that I’m eating with a bottle of 2007 Bourgogne Rouge from Domaine Darviot-Perrin. I’m so glad I popped the cork on this one tonight; it’s simple, fresh, very tasty with lovely, crunchy red cherry fruit to the fore. It’s really long and very moreish. It’s a lovely straight-ahead Bourgogne Rouge that wants drinking now so you can enjoy it in its delicious youth before it closes us. Get some if you can.
