Community Tasting Notes (average 76.8 pts. and median of 72 pts. in 6 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by WNissen on 6/16/2011: Recognizably pinot noir, and reasonably balanced. At this price, that's a value. God. (2890 views)
 Tasted by nebre8 on 4/16/2010 & rated 91 points: a little yeasty in the nose, a light red in every sense (12.7%), explosion of fruit and tannins, fresh and zingy, acidic in a good way, lingering finish, a very well built and fairly complex Burgundian Pinot (2922 views)
 Tasted by klezman on 12/5/2009 & rated 72 points: Thin and watery, with a pretty sour aftertaste. For a few dollars, not nearly as bad as others out therebut certainly not full of berries or other red/dark fruit. Maybe some greener notes. (3080 views)
 Tasted by Snoman on 7/1/2009 & rated 68 points: Well-made from unripe fruit. Nothing can save this wine from being green and tangy, with vegetal overlay. Absolutely requires food to consume. A steal at 2.99 from Trader Joe's......that is they stole the TJ buyer's money on this one. (3483 views)
 Tasted by RobertDwyer on 1/23/2009 & rated 68 points: What an awful wine. Watery, lacking flavor, extremely low alcohol and a non-existent finish. Amazingly, a bad value even at $6.99. What a disappointing French Pinot Noir. The problem I have with wines like this, is that somebody might be turned off to the varietal in general after experimenting with this one. Avoid like the plague at any price. (3750 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
