As you know Burgundy is the home of Pinot Noir and unfortunately they like to charge for the stuff. However, the odd, quality bottle comes to Vintages at a reasonable price. Expect light reds with lots of personality – perfect for summer events. Chill lightly.
Montreal native Pascal Marchand was a consultant on Niagara’s Clos Jordanne project and is now doing his thing in Burgundy. I really like the gutsy, rustic personality in his 09 Pinot. A light red that’s more ‘country’ than ‘fruity’.
