2009 Domaine Antonin Rodet RULLY "Chateau de Rully" (Southern Burgundy, France)
Medium ruby/garnet color that looks too advanced for a 3-year old PN. Nose of dry leaves, scorched earth, and some vaguely cherryish scents. Dry, dessicated flavors are uncharacteristically austere for an '09. Nothing wrong with it, but highly-disappointing for a $20 wine. When it comes to red burgundies, I'm like a dysfunctional addict. I keep going back, trying to find one I'll really like, only to be disappointed time and time again. C. Was $19.99 at Total Wine in McLean. Imported by Boisset America.
