Ruby to garnet in the glass, with good clarity and even extraction close to the rim, this Bourgogne may be slightly “generic” but it is a classic and true representation of Burgundian Pinot Noir production. With a nose of cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco leaf, cinnamon, and paprika, it really is typical of its greater Côte-d’Or terroir. A taste brings additional notes of earth, rose pedals, and a touch of grill char, all balanced by good acidity. The finish is short-to-medium, with all elements mingling. If you want to experience what real red Burgundy is all about, without the heftier price tags of the great crus, this 100% Pinot Noir is a wonderful way to contrast with Pinot Noirs from other parts of the world. ….Oh, and, by the way, it’s delicious.
