There is admirable energy in this Burdgundian pinot noir. Medium-bodied and crisp, it displays pure cherry-like fruit enhanced by smoke, spice and a bell-pepper-like herbal quality. Imagine grilled green pepper. Great value for a premier-cru Burgundy. But maybe that’s why it’s only available direct from the Toronto importer: www.lecaviste.ca, 647 344.4326.
