Blason de Bourgogne Bourgogne Pinor Noir 2008
From http://www.blason.com.au Pinot Noir is a pure paradox for the winemaker; he desires and pampers this variety as much as he can dread it. Pinot Noir which is noble and demanding is certainly the most difficult variety in the world to cultivate,vinify and mature. It requires attention and precision at all times and implies a merged, intuitive rapport from the man who works so passionately with it. Powerful yet fragile, dazzling yet reserved, Pinot Noir feeds its complexity with all these dualities. Yet despite its exalted status throughout the world it is really in Burgundy that Pinot Noir long ago found its referred terrain or, more precisely, its terroir of partiality.
