Bouchard Pere & Fils Reserve Bourgogne 2007

$27. This is a Pinot Noir from Château de Beaune in Côte D'Or. This is the same place that produces top quality Chardonnay but inferior Pinot Noir. On the nose, a simple bright strawberry note. On the palate, it is astringent, very acidic (tart), dry.

At this price tag, try an Australian (Yarra Valley) or New Zealand (Martinborough) Pinot Noir. You won't be disappointed.
