A classic Burgundian Pinot Noir, this wine is ruby in colour with a purple rim and boasts bold aromas of wild strawberry and red currant underpinned by subtle notes of spice. On the palate the red berries carry through, and there is a very smooth mouthfeel alongside a slight minerality. Fine tannins and a very moreish finish complete a superb experience.
3 Point Summary
Aromas and flavours of red fruit, very smooth and with fine tannins.
