Madame Veuve Point Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015
Madame Veuve Point Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2015: A Young, Fruity Pinor Noir
I am trying to keep up with my weekly once-a-bottle wine tasting and today I’ll be reviewing a 2015 vintage bottle of Pinot Noir from Madame Veuve Point, who is a female winemaker.
On the looks, it is medium ruby, garnet in colour, with medium opacity. Legs were plentiful and visible. However, it is “thin” possibly due to the lower alcohol content level of 12.5%. I have seen “stronger” legs in other wines such as the Rioja in my previous post here. I would say this wine has a pretty balanced character.
Medium ruby, garnet colour
On the nose, I could distinctly smell fruity notes. Smells include cherries, cranberries, dried figs, cinnamon, and tart. Earth notes detected include oak, soil and flowers.
On the palate, I could taste cranberries, lemon, lime, black currents and sourdough. This is an acidic but juicy wine with medium tannins. It is a dry wine yet it is delectable to drink. This will make a good everyday drinking wine but it will not be suitable for those who want something more complex.
Juicy Pinor Noir, for everyday drinking.
This wine was also bought it from Estate Wines Cellar in Punggol Oasis, which I featured them in my earlier post here. They are able to recommend you the different types of wines for a start to suit your taste buds.
Have a great time drinking.
