Pinot Noir is the red grape of France's famous Burgundy region and specifically the Cote d'Or where the most famous red Burgundy is produced. It is said that Pinot Noir grapes have grown in this area for over 2,000 years. Burgundy produces, arguably, the best Pinot Noir in the world. Pinot Noir is also grown in many other areas of the world, including California, Oregon, Italy and Australia. The Pinot Noir grape is also used in the production of Champagne in France and sparkling wines the world over. Wherever they are from you should buy Pinot Noir wines and Red Burgundy at the Ultimate Wine Shop.
Louis Jadot produces a wine of great distinction, with a powerful yet refined perfume of violets and red berries and a finely balanced, fruit richness on the palate. The subtle tannins carry into a prolonged finish.
A superb balance of power and elegance, this great grand cru allies intense, velvety dark stone fruit flavors to complex notes of spice, earth and oak which repeat the bouquet, supported by firm, lingering tannins.
Medium red. Soil-driven aromas of smoke, mocha and earth. Suave and smoky, with a strong element of flinty minerality dominating the palate today. All about terroir, and yet I'd like to have seen more early treble tones.
