“Pinot Noir... complete the pair.”

Fresh Raspberry and Dried Spice To Complete The Pair

By David Gettenberg

Yesterday's Piuze Chablis feature was so popular, we thought it apropos to showcase a complementary red Burgundy to complete your red and white wine house pour.

Organically farmed, the 2017 Francois Labet Bourgogne Pinot Noir boasts old-vines ("Vieilles Vignes"), which reach deep into the soil extracting wonderful minerality.  

This red Burgundy is not a big, juicy, fruit-forward Pinot Noir (a laCalifornia); rather, it is soft, pretty, and elegant.  

Classic dried spice, cranberry, rose petal, and violet notes are followed by Rhubarb, tea leaf, and cocoa.  The tannins are fine and round, not sharp.  It has a faint touch of vanilla bean on the very subtle and graceful finish.

From salmon to chicken to cheese, this is a delicious and versatile red.

Add it to yesterday's Patrick Piuze Chablis, and together, you have one handsome couple! 

And, with the recent tariffs and consumers' insatiable demand for good red Burgundies, this $30 Bourgogne Rouge is a tremendous Burgundy value!

Enjoy!
