Tasting Notes

A wine full of charm: bright ruby colour and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance.

Producer details

The name LaForêt (pronounced "La-fo-ray") is synonymous with quality. Joseph Drouhin takes great care in selecting the various cuvées.

In the winery

Maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks using indigenous yeasts, maceration and fermentation temperatures under total control. Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance to a wine but should never be detrimental to its finesse and typical character. Composed like a perfume. Véronique Drouhin and the blend of LaForêt."We have a good palette of aromas and flavours. My Pinots Noirs come from the Côte Chalonnaise for the elegance and the north of the Côte de Nuits for depth. With this structure, LaForêt is a faithful wine, and we rediscover these traits from year to year". The wine is aged for 7 to 8 months in stainless before 1 to 2 years in old barrels for higher provenance.

Food Recommendations

Aperitif or a light dinner or lunch in a trendy restaurant Pinot Noir and grilled chicken, pasta with pesto... simple things, a sign of times".
