Vintage: 2009
Type: Pinot Noir
Country: France – Burgundy

Berry’s team of experts were behind this beautiful Pinot Noir from the Bourgogne. Berry’s website describes this wine as intense, perfumed and pretty. I would agree. Save this bottle for a nicer meal at home, for example, when serving a rotisserie chicken with dressed vegetables. When I drink this wine, I can imagine myself dining al fresco on a tiled patio of a Chateau, overlooking the rolling hills covered in vineyards. It’s a lovely wine.

Clear, light Ruby.

Outstanding
