Country: France, Burgundy, Vosne Romanee
Grape Variety: Pinot Noir

The 2021 Vosne-Romanée Les Chalandins has an open nose of bright red cherry and wild strawberry scents, a fine "attack" for a modest Village Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, fine depth, taut and fresh with a sapid finish. Couldn`t want anything more from a Vosne Village in this growing season. 90-92 Neal Martin, Vinous.

Tasting Notes: Plenty of spice influence aromas of poached plum, black cherry and warm earth. The succulent, round and suave medium-weight flavours possess a solid punch on the lingering if slightly warm finish.

Food Pairing: Pasta, Meat, Game, Cheese and Pork

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
