Staff Reviews

Alan Herrmann - Prestige Wine & Spirits October 17, 2015

"This Pinot Noir is medium to full bodied, with surprising complexity and a dark, rich color. There are notes of black currant, cherry, spice and vanilla, which made me think it tasted more like a Grenache-Syrah blend with some Cinsault, perhaps."

From the Producer

This wine has a medium ruby color with very elegant notes of red berries (strawberry, cherry, griottes) combined with soft spices aromas with a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied wine with ripe tannins and a well-balanced acidity. Red fruits aromas combined w

Critical Acclaim

WE87 Wine Enthusiast 11/1/2016

"Rich red cherry, plum and raspberry tones lead the nose of this fruit-forward wine, with hints of cocoa and cola spice dancing in the background. Those notes follow through to the satiny palate, framed by soft tannins that lead into a solid, medium-length finish." (87 pts.)

SP87 Wine Spectator Web only – 2016

"A core of black cherry and blackberry flavors is nicely offset by ground spice, herb and smoke accents. Fresh acidity and light tannins hang on in the minerally finish. Drink now through 2019. 110 cases imported." (87 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
