Joseph Drouhin Bourgogne Pinot Noir Laforet 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a delicious red Burgundy wine made from the noble Pinot Noir variety, and one of the top producers in Burgundy, Joseph Drouhin. The 2011 Joseph Drouhin Laforet Bourgogne Pinot Noir has juicy red cherry fruit with earthy notes that have hints of spice. "A very pinot nose cut with soft earth notes leads to energetic and detailed flavors that possess plenty of character..." -Allen Meadows' Burghound *Screw Cap*

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

Somewhat flat and bland with some red cherry and decent acidity. This could use more fruit and/or body.

First France Pinot Noir. Not bad at all. Very Pale and translucent slightly brown Ruby Color. Very dry with more of a spice, mineral, musty, and earth nose and taste than fruit. Fruit when it came is more of a sour plum/cherry. Compared this to a bit of the Sierra del Mar California Pinot. the Reverse Wine Snob has a review of this @ http://www.reversewinesnob.com/2013/08/joseph-drouhin-laforet-bourgogne.html

A wine full of charm: bright ruby color and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance. It is not a wine we recommend to cellar for many years. Drink it when young, up to two or three years. We suggest serving Laforet at 59° F-61° F. Easy to match with food, it will be best with assorted deli meats, poultry, white meat, "au gratin" dishes, roasted meat and soft cheese. - Winery

The hue 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.
