Pizza and Pinot Night for week 4

I have a lovely person that I follow on Twitter and Instagram (@WaterLilyTO), who introduced me to pizza and pinot night. Though I love making pizza, busy nights do have us calling for delivery, though I am jealous of her drool worthy homemade pizzas.  So now because of her, when we have pizza, we automatically open a bottle of pinot.

IMG_0298Château des Charmes Paul Bosc Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir from 2007 was chosen to compliment a jalapeño/chorizo pizza. @WineGuyTO had the following observations: The initial impressions on removing the cord were a wonderful, earthy nose, great colour already moving to a brick red.  The first sip was full of complexity, earth and dark fruits.  As it opened up (considerably), it had softened to notes of dark cherry and had a relatively long finish.  There was a surprising amount of tannins for a 7+ year old Pinot.  The second day, the tannins were much softer. As we always buy bottles in pairs, I can’t wait to revisit this wine again in another five years.
