"Well-balanced and energetic, with flavors of herbs and sweet-tart red fruits."-Eric Asimov, New York Times, Best Value!
The 2015 "Les Voisins" Pinot Noir represents the focus and concentration that this vintage will be known for. This bottling presents aromatics of black cherry skins, star anise, and sweet tea leaves. On the palate, flavors of raspberry compote and red currants are met with notes of forest floor and vanilla. The lush, silky texture is balanced with a lasting finish. Aged in 99% neutral French oak.
Enjoy Copain Pinot Noir Les Voisins with friends over roast pork, grilled salmon, veal Milanese and aged cheeses.
