What I liked about this wine when I first had it was that it was not a simple, “wine by the numbers” well-made crowd-pleasing wine. This wine is full of character, it’s a real rustic farmer style Burgundy. The cherry fruit we usually find in pinots from Burgundy is present but takes a back seat to black raspberry and strawberry. On the palate we find the subtle strawberry again but also a nice spice and a surprisingly good grip and long finish. For the wine drinker looking to have an authentic Burgundy and not break the bank I can not think of a better wine.
