Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
This sensual and heady wine brings out black fruits aromas (blackberry, bilberry). Mouth reveals silky and ripe tannins, with a very good aromatic persistence.
"Dense and concentrated, with ripe dark fruit, this red evokes black cherry, plum and iron, with vibrant acidity and firm tannins. Everything is there, just needs time to come together. Has a long, long aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Best from 2012 through 2030. 225 cases imported."
"Bright ruby. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, violet and spices, plus a whiff of celery seed. Dense, lush and sweet, with complex notes of minerals, tobacco and bitter chocolate. The chewy, ripe tannins arrive late and are nicely supported by the wine's material. Lots of potential here. Range 90-93."
