Wednesday Wine Pick – 7/18

lucpirlet

Each Wednesday I try to find a quality wine that won’t bust the budget. Luc Pirlet Reserve Pinot Noir 2016.

Very bright, translucent ruby in color with a clear rim. The nose is blueberries, raspberry, licorice, cedar shavings and graphite. The flavors are cranberry, cigar box, licorice and cola. Grippy tannins. Long, long warming finish – lingers forever.

A very solid and pleasant Pinot for around $15. My only complaint is that it’s just a bit flat in the middle. It needs a couple of hours to really open up. I give it 88 points IMHO.
