2016 Comtes de Saint Martin Bourgogne Pinot Noir Burgundy France
Comtes de Saint-Martin produces a quality-driven range of Burgundy wines. Working with a handful of producers respectful of their terroir and focused on highly-expressive wines.
In many cases the regional red Bourgogne grow and flourish near more prestigious AOC. These close neighbours are separated by only hundreds or sometimes even as little as tens of metres. The vineyards tend to be located along the foot of the wine-growing slopes on limestone soils mixed with some clays and marls. The soils are stony, rocky even, and quick-draining.

• Bright ruby red hue, this wine shows an explosion of fresh red berries on the nose.
• In the mouth, the flavor of red fruits is mixed with soft spices.
