A robust, fleshy wine with plenty of fine-grained tannins giving weight, volume and an enduring texture.
The Saint Georges Pinot Noir is elegant and perfumed. It has notes of violets and raspberry that are balanced by refreshing acidity.
An intoxicating perfume of hot stones, North African spices, leather and dried fuit leads to a palate of incredible richness, concentration and purity.
It's made from grapes mainly from grapes from Auxey-Duresses and Meursault. Expect fresh aromas of peach and lemon and a subtle hint of hazelnut, thanks to some oak ageing and lees influence.
Nestled next to Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-Saint-Denis is where you'll find the best value red Burgundy. Here, the Henri Pion winery hand-picks Pinot Noir grapes from a single plot of 80-year-old vines.
Blackcurrant follows through onto the palate which is lined with a core of firm, ripe tannins, kept together with a nervous acidity.
Pears, sweet peaches and pineapples abound in this wine, which is delicately dry, full-flavoured, with a silky palate-feel and lashings of vanilla and spice on the long finish. Perfect with pork.
Pierre Rostaing makes some of the Rhône's most desired wines.
