Buy Joseph Drouhin Laforet Pinot Noir
The hue has usually a brillant ruby-garnet colour. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink : fresh and fruity berry flavours with light and elegant tannins. The alcoholic content is generally around 12.5. There is no residual sugar.
