A Frenchy that acts all New World…. Very nice and easy drinking, yet so totally un-burgundian in flavor profile. I would hazard a guess that some Syrah has been added here as the wine is really much darker, heavier and less Pinot like than what I expected. Very nice flavors of strawberry and blackberry, yet no cherry (unlike most Pinots). Certainly no earthiness to this wine and the fruit forwardness shows a new style of winemaking. Balanced, yet lacking any tannic structure, this wine is an easy drinker that won’t break the bank. We drank it per-dinner and then with some burgers, it played well. I would give this one 86 points technically and 4 stars for being decent at a good price.
