Joseph Drouhin Laforet Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2011 750ML    
Sku: 20043

It is well known that the Gauls planted Pinot Noir before the Roman invasion. In 150 BC, the first vineyards of this grape variety appeared at the top of the hills of Meursault and Pommard. The Romans, in turn, noticed that it liked light soil, a temperate climate, and that it did best facing East. With such a long history, it is clear that no other grape fits the climate and soil of Burgundy better than Pinot. By strictly adhering to these qualitative and historical parameters, Joseph Drouhin wants its LAFORET BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR to be the archetype of Burgundy. Grapes are selected from different vineyards, generally from the Côte de Beaune. They are handpicked and then brought to the Drouhin cellars "en Chavet", on the outskirts of Beaune. The destemmed grapes ferment in open wooden vats or stainless steel fermenters. The total fermentation and maceration last for about 16 days. Part of the wine is aged in barrels, part in stainless steel tanks so that the wine can acquire more complexity and keep its fruitiness.

Tasting notes
Thehue has usually a brillant ruby-garnet colour. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink : fresh and fruity berry flavours with light and elegant tannins.

Technical notes
The alcoholic content is generally around 12.5. There is no residual sugar.

Food pairing
Easy to match with food, it will be best with assorted delicatessen, poultry, white meat, "au gratin" dishes, roasted meat and soft cheese.
