Laforêt Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2011

By Brian @WineInMyGlass

I’m looking through my unpublished posts, and this is one that looks complete enough to publish. If I find a photo (or if someone wants to send me a good photo), I’ll add it later.

I recently received this wine as a review sample. This wine was produced by Joseph Drouhin in the Bourgogne (Burgundy) region of France. It is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. According to the information I received, the grapes are sourced from Côte Chalonnaise and north of the Côte de Nuits.

I get some light red fruits on the nose (cherry and strawberry) along with what I’d describe as a bit of an earthy smell. Similar flavors on the palate, along with a hint of spice. There’s very little oak influence. Good acidity balances the wine.

This paired very nicely with a pork tenderloin.

I’m giving this a “Very Good” rating.

Disclaimer: I received a bottle of this wine as a free media sample. Please see my Sample Policy for more information.
