A good basic Burgundy Pinot Noir, this wine is fruity and balanced. Ready to drink now, it will mellow further with a year of cellaring.

  • Offers simple, clean, straightforward fruit on the nose tending toward strawberries but also with a hint of spice and mushrooms and a little oaky toast. Not a powerful wine, but with good body, excellent poise, and a very appealing delicate, ethereal quality hard to articulate. Ready to drink, but attractive, fruity sweetness on a moderately long finish suggests there may be a little further development. Solid. An excellent value.

    Food pairing: Duck; lamb; roasted chicken; earthy, mushroom-scented dishes

  • Medium-intensity cherry, light floral notes, pepper and sweet spice, hints of truffle and a light, earthy minerality mark the nose. There’s a distant suggestion of anise as well. The attack on the palate suggests mostly something floral. Medium body, with appetizing acidity and a slight astringency. Crisp red fruit dominates the mid-palate, but layers of savory flavors lurk in the background, lasting through a lively, fruity finish. Likely to go well with mushroom risotto or stewed beef dishes.

    Food pairing: mushroom risotto
