Bargain Pinot Noir

I chose the 2006 Le Jardin de Charlotte Becky Wasserman & Fils Bourgogne Pinot Noir as the wine for the evening.  I purchased this from Domaine547 several months ago for $17.99.  It clocked in at 12.5% alcohol by volume and had a Diam closure.

On the nose I found vanilla cream, tart berries, leather, cedar, earth, spice, and black cherries.  In the mouth I got flavors of raspberry, black cherry, more red fruit, red cherries, a little earth, and spice.  I found the fruit to be tart and fresh, with the mouth showing darker than I anticipated from the mouth.

At $17.99, this is an excellent deal for a Pinot Noir. Especially with the holidays upon us, I’m looking for great wine at a great price to serve with all the guests coming over and stopping by throughout the season.  This one certainly fits the bill.

  1. Nice post.

    The general population steers clear from Burgundy in part because they think there is little value to be found there- It is so untrue. In BURG, you can find much more drinkable PN in the sub $20 world than you can anywhere from CA.

    Happy NYE!

  2. Thanks Dirty. I admit to being guilty of not heading to Burgundian wines often myself…but that’s mainly cause I don’t really know much about them! Hope your NYE was happy!
