A remarkable Pinot Noir, and highly recommended.

A remarkably aristocratic Burgundy, remarkable especially considering the price point (Burgundy is the bizarro world of wine, in which spending under $30 usually gets you an average everyday bottle). The wine boasts deep floral notes and even deeper fruit aromas. The balance of flavors here is wonderful, with fruit and tannin intertwined with a cooling salinity. The finish is pure and intense and long-lasting. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone but Burgundy lovers, but they should grab as much of this Marsannay les Champsalomon as they can.
