Default TN: overachieving Marsannay

Lovely fall day even if it's still summer, dinner was grilled pork
chops and king trumpet mushrooms, plus roasted vegetables and salad.
Wine was the 2007 Bart "Les Echezots" Marsannay, and was maybe the
best Marsannay I ever remember. Lovely sappy cherry fruit, smoke, and
earth. Nice from the get-go and it kept getting better through night.
Good weight and depth for a Marsannay (really, quite fine period, I'd
have been happy if this was a $40 Gevrey). Spice and sandalwood with
time. I picked up one more today, my wine budget is busted or I would
order more. A-/B+

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.*
