Bourgogne Cote d'Or Pinot Noir AOP 2022, Domaine Laboureau
Good everyday Burgundy from the house of Laboureau.
"Hard to find a Burgundy as good as this at this price. A revelation."
"What a wonderful wine this was to enjoy with a friend. Enjoyed on a Sunday afternoon it was wonderfully light & smooth - a real treat."
Matthieu Laboureau follows in his family tradition as winemakers since 1640. Sustainably farmed, 35-year-old vines produce the grapes for this perfect pinot. All the work on the vines is carried out by hand, and grapes selected on table before traditional vinification and ageing for 18 months in old French oak barrels.
Crimson red with dark ruby reflections. Plenty of red and black fruit on the nose with peppery, prune notes. Refined character with a light and fluid structure in the mouth with lots of blackcurrant and delicate spice. Perfectly balanced with a very fine finish.
