Wine Type: Red
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Alcohol: 13%
Origin: Bourgogne, France

Expect to Pay: ~ THB2,000
Chubby Score: 92/100
Value for money: 7/10
Professional Rating: n.a.

Appearance: deep ruby
Aroma: floral and red currants infusion, some earth
Palate: medium bodied with opulent punch. some sweet red fruits and plum. sharp long finish. flavour development stemming along the course. a little low on acidity. a bit of pungent aftertaste.

It is a rather modern Burgundy for me. There are volume and mild sweetness like those pinot noir from California. I might as well say it is a half-blood. Nevertheless, there was so much joy from this bottle. After an hour from opening, it was blossoming splendidly. Rather value for money from my opinion and is the one to watch for development.
