Mike rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Worked with trout. Actually the 2017. Cheap at OS LCBO right now - could put a few away.
Monique Sosa reviewed this wine as follows:

I call this Pinot a beginner's guide to Bourgogne reds. Cherry, spice, juicy acidy and earthy smoke stands out. The palate is mouthwatering and tannins are medium-low (for a Pinot). The Albert-Bichot family of wines covers Bourgogne from Chablis to Beaujolais. They are still family operated and craft dozens of incredible wines. Tasting your way through their portfolio is like an RPG journey, keep exploring and unlock gems!
Simon Chen rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

easy daily drinking pinot but keeping old-world style. Nice cherry flavors, med- structure, and med. acidity. Pleasant wine to drink before meals
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A vibrant and lively Burgundian Pinot Noir with light aromas of cherry, raspberry, light skinned plum, with a touch of forest and a hint of smoked cinnamon. Simple and youthful. Flavours are energized with tart cherry, cranberry, strawberry, and a touch of metallic bitterness at the end. High acidity, light bodied with low tannins and a medium plus finish. Very dry (2g/L). This will pair nicely with soft cheeses such as Brie or Camembert and lightly toasted almonds and pork tenderloin. October 2017
Jane Staples rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A Bourgogne old vine/vieilles vignes Pinot Noir, garnet red with watery rim, giving aromas of dark red fruit and dried herbs. The palate has concentrated tart cherry, earth, tobacco, spice, smoke and oak with mouth-watering acidity and tart fruit finish with hint of mocha.
This would be great with roast duck or mild cheeses.
Tasted Dec. 2016
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nose of cherries, cumin, tea leaves, wet newspaper.

On the palate, dry, medium intensity flavours of tart cherry, raspberry, red currant, fennel, white pepper. Pleasing medium finish.

A well done generic level Bourgogne Pinot Noir.

Tasted October 2016.

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.
