Domaine des Crêts 2014 Bourgogne Pinot Noir

There is both gamay noir and pinot noir planted at the Domaine, but the gamay will be ripped out and replanted with chardonnay, so we decided not to start with it. But this Bourgogne Pinot Noir is delicious. It’s a brighter and livelier offering than the Lequin-Colin Bourgogne Pinot Noir, which is more serious in its scope. Indeed, the styles of the wines reflect a different philosophy in winemaking for the reds which François does not insist on for the chardonnays. “I want freshness and fruitiness in the Domaine des Crêts pinot noir and I want structure and seriousness from Lequin-Colin.”
