Moving on to another red from Sancerre, not known for their reds, I tried a 2010 Michel Girard pinot noir.
I don't have the price, but I bought it from Morrell's in NYC, whose customer service is excellent.
To make a long review short: I didn't much care for it. I don't have much experience with pinots (one reason I'm drinking them this fall and winter), but this wine didn't seem to have much nose or flavor. I did aerate it, and it didn't improve the next night either. It could have been a house red I ordered with pizza.
This pinot is drinkable, but I didn't find it at all memorable or one that I'd buy again.
