An elegant dry and medium-bodied Old World Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Earthy and floral on the nose with ripe red berry, cherry, sweet spice, savoury herb and flinty flavours on the palate. Food friendly with medium-plus acidity. Tannins are well-integrated. Pair with lamb kebabs.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal scaloppini with a mushroom sauce, beef bourguignon, pork tenderloin, mushroom and truffle dishes, coq au vin.

Reviews and Ratings

Alan Dunne rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great value. Remember this producer.
Roche De Bellene 2017 Pinot Noir cuvée réserve is a well-priced PN with old world charm. Elegant with bright red berry, cherry, earthy mushroom, blue florals and cedar spice flavours on the palate. Good acidity for food. There are 4,620 hectares planted for this Pinot Noir and the vines are 35 to 70 years old. Pair with slow-braised beef cheeks and lentil stew. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
