Winemaker's Notes:

This particular vintage exhibits lots of nice flavors of red berries, high tone fruit, and bright acidity with soft and supple tannins.

"Our Burgundian Pinot Noir is elegant and refined with layers of black cherries and a light smokiness and spice "cinnamon and sage". The dense ruby color is as bold as the cherry and spice bouquet. True to the Burgundian style and to the varietal, the wine has an earthiness to it that graduates into bright and bold red fruits. This wine continues to unfold up until the smooth finish."
—Christian Roguenant, Winemaker

This wine is recommended for pairing with pheasant, elk, roasted duck, grilled seafood or French cheeses.
