Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is quite a modern style of pinot noir out of the Sancerre region of france. There's still some fruit in this (despite have a couple of years maturity), with raspberries and ripe strawberries mingling with some earthy elements. The palate is medium-bodied and savoury-edged, with some red fruit flavours remaining, fine tannins and a smooth finish. Enjoy tonight over some roast duck.

Winemaker's Notes

This Sancerre rouge is created from Pinot Noir vines growing on chalky-clay soils.

Small red berries with Morello cherries, this delightful wine is also a “surprising” wine as the Pinot Noir shows an harmonious balance between the freshness brought by the Loire river and the Burgundy typicity of this grape variety.

This wine with its characteristic connotations of red fruits (cherries, morellos…) is subtly woody. On the palate, it reveals good roundness and a light, pleasant astringency (tannins from the grapes as well as the oak barrels) assuring good aging for 8 to 10 years.

The ample bouquet of Les Baronnes is ideal for your braised and pan-sautéed white or red meats. Glazed roast meats are a perfect match... Pure pleasure!
