Domaine Henri Naudin-Ferrand, Bourgogne Pinot Noir AOC, Burgundy, France 2008

Dry red wine from the Beaune region in Burgundy, France.

Technical Data: 100% Pinot Noir. Underwent 100% malolactic fermentation. On the lees for several months. 30 Years old vines.

Description: Nice light red color. On the nose the wine is very fruity showing off fresh cherries and raspberries with a good earthy note. On the palate, medium to full bodied wine. Beautiful expression of a Burgundy Pinot Noir AOC with red and black fresh fruits laced with forest and earthy flavors. A hint of smoke as well as a touch of spice complete the scene. This wine is supple, almost silky with very smooth tannins.

Food Pairing & Service: Enjoy in general with paté & deli. During summertime, serve slightly chilled with spicy BBQ or grilled fish.

Score: 8/10.

Ageing Potential:

Price as seen on DC shelf: usually around $18.00

Importer/Distributor: Comete Wines from Silver Spring MD
