This Bourgogne Rouge is a fabulous Pinot Noir, with all the hallmarks of delicious Burgundy minus the hefty price tag. A very approachable, lighter red with notes of juicy red fruit and plum, with crunchy cherry and graphite.
Domaine Lacour is based in Burgundy's Côtes du Couchois, a small area south of Maranges that largely flies under the radar for many Burgundy drinkers. However, with its rich soils, this area is producing wines with brilliant tannin structure and salinity. Combine this with innovative producers like Domaine Lacour and you have a recipe for a very bright future - and great value!
