Pinot Noir is the noblest of all the grapes and it reflects it’s terroir more than any other variety!
Domaine Delagrange Haute – Cotes de Beaune Pinot Noir – Didier owns 14 hectares of vines in the communes of Volnay, Pommard, Aloxe- Corton, Meursault and Haute-Côtes de Beaune. Didier can boast some of the best plots located right in the centre of Volnay. The philosophy he has embraced is simple: hard work by hand in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the cellar. He ploughs rather than sprays and uses only organic vine and soil treatments, de-buds to limit yields, defoliates by hand to prevent rot and harvests manually. In the cellar he uses new oak only sparingly, with 30% whole-bunch ferments in the reds. Didier’s main focus is to make wines that have precise aromatics followed by a pure core of classic Burgundian fruit.
Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir is a rich , generous and savoury Pinot Noir. There is plenty of plums, cherry, and dark fruits wrapped up in a slick, polished mouthfeel. This is an exceptional wine from a very good vintage.
Brendan Keys BK Wines Skin n Bones Pinot Noir is fermented in big old concrete vats using 100% whole bunches to add freshness. This is pretty to smell. It’s fresh & high-toned with orange peel, spices, sour cherries, mulberries & just keeps showing layers of fruit. Love the tannin structure; it’s almost gamay-like, Beaujolais-like. Serve slightly chilled and slurp to your heart’s content
