Fabulous 2003 Burgundy

I had a great wine last night. It was a Pierre Morey, the highly-regarded biodynamic winemaker in Burgundy who also heads up the cellar at Domaine LeFlaive. The 2003 Monthelie is 100% Pinot Noir and smooth with ideal structure (the alcohol level is also an ideal 12.5%, at least for me). It retails for $33, which I’m happy to pay for a Pinot. You can get it at Coit Liquor on Columbus St. in SF, or Swirl on Castro, whose inventory is about 40 percent biodynamic. By the way, Jenny came back from a business trip in Denver where she went WINETASTING. She noticed that many of the grapes came from Lodi (hello, that’s because Lodi has magic soil), but brought me back a merlot that’s predominantly Colorado grapes. Yes, I’ll let you know.
