Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2007, shared with a friend à la table de Léonce, the summer restaurant in Château du Clos Vougeot. Amazing drink #closvougeot #closvougeotgrandcru #bourgogne #ilovepinotnoir
Probably my first Pinot Noir from Italy. Called Pinot Nero it is mostly grown in Northern Italy needing the cool evenings from the altitude.
Light and easy. Will have to try more of those
Great article (in French only) about Pinot Noir from Clos Vougeot in Burgundy, one of the kings of Pinot Noir. Thomas Jefferson went there to visit it in 1787
As a Pinot Noir lover, I could not pass The drink business’s ranking of top Pinot Noir 2022.
Spending time in France was a great opportunity to go to Pinot Noir Mecca, the Clos Vougeot Castle, home to the “Confrérie du Tastevin” wine brotherhood. Since I am a member, I have been there many times but going there is always great. Weather and clouds were perfect for a beautiful picture of this magical place.
This time, I was having lunch at the castle, at “La table de Léonce”, the summer only lunch and wine offer at the Castle. This will be covered in a specific post.
Pinot Noir is one of the most important grape variety and very addictive. Falstaff.com gives a great overview of various growing region, starting with my home region of Burgundy.
