Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: Ruby colour with intense crimson highlights. The nose opens to intense notes of summer fruits and sometimes of violets. After ageing somewhat, the wine turns to undergrowth and spices. On the palate, the tannins provide the framework but the fat balances this solidity, which decreases with the years.
About the winery:
The Poisot Pere et Fils estate is the result of a long history of parentage. Coming from the same family as Louis Latour, the property was operated for a long time by tenant farming before being taken over in 1986 by Maurice Poisot. Concerned about maintaining the wine heritage and the quality of the grapes, the Poisot family expresses the complex nuances of the terroir through wines worthy of the best of Burgundy.
