The Day Of Wine

Today in Sweden it is apparently The Day of Wine -
Well, any excuse for open a bottle of wine is good in my book. But I thought every day was a wine day...:-)

2009 Volnay En Caillerets, La Pousse d´Or
A young, gorgeously pure and fresh nose with notes of lingonberries, barely ripe raspberries, forest floor, Asian spices and some woodsmoke. Very refined. Opens up nicely during the afternoon with more warmth and darker fruits. Very, very good.
The taste is young, fresh and velvety with notes of mashed raspberries, lingonberry bushes, bakelite and spices. A high, fine acidity. Broadens in the glass with time and air, and becomes a bit darker. Still needs 3-5 years in the cellar to really open up, but this is drinking fine on this Day of Wine.
