Over the weekend we tasted several wines, including a delicious Pinot Noir from the Cote-D’or wine region of France. This 2009 bottle was available in 375mL (a half bottle) for $13 locally which is just enough for two generous glasses.
Established in 1937, Bourgogne is the generic appellation covering those Burgundy wines produced from vineyards that do not have more location-specific titles. This Pinot exhibits a hint of tar and cherries on the nose, light silky body with beautiful, vibrant flavors and a lasting finish. One of the nicer Pinot’s we’ve tasted as of late, and highly recommend you give it a shot.
From the winemaker, “Bourgogne Pinot Noir is the regional appellation whose wines come from any part of Burgundy. This wine exhibits the characteristics of the great red Burgundies. Noble and full, it has a resplendent colour combining grace with vigour and associating strength with finesse. On the palate fresh raspberries are in evidence when the wine is young.”
The family-run company of Maison Louis Latour is one of the most highly-respected négociant-éléveurs in Burgundy. Renowned throughout the world for the quality of its red and white wines, the company has built a reputation for tradition and innovation. [Visit them here]
