Not your average Pinot Noir - Not what you expect from your everyday Pinot Noir. This biodynamic stunner comes from the southwest of the Loire right on the shores of the Atlantic. With floral and slight herbal aromas on the nose this wine proves upon opening that it is much more than the overly extracted fruit bombs from the new world. It is a true expression of the terrior, with dry cherries and forest floor on the palate and a long elegant finish. The winemaker, Thierry Michon was so obsessed with biodynamic farming that he bought up all of the land sourounding his vineyard to insure there were no chemically corrupted vines remotely close to his own. Although this wine is terrific on its own, it would go great with winter beef stew or a venison roast.
