If Pinot noir is your favourite grape or something you aim to know well,  this is a great way to get to know it.  As many contrasting styles as we could fit into a case.  From heavy to light, turbo-charged fruit to undergrowth-y characters, from old world to new, from hot years to cold.  Dig in, compare and discover what this grape is really capable of.




 



  • Alexana Terroir Series Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

    “If anyone asks you why people bang on about Oregon Pinot Noir, just give them a glass of this. Wild strawberry and raspberry compote, cured meat and sweet spice, bright acidity and subtle, velvet-smooth tannin. Multi-faceted, delicious and moreish, this is how Willamette Valley Pinot should be.”


  • L'Usine Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir

    “Welcome to Pinot noir on steroids and lots of them. So deep and dark the kids will need putting to bed. Turbocharged with black cherry and plum, leather, straw, old railway sleepers but so smooth and divine. You know it's naughty and quite probably wrong but you can't help coming back for more.”


  • Domaine Fichet Bourgogne Rouge

    “Don't be put off by the somewhat 'generic' Bourgogne Rouge name. Rich with red cherries, red plums and red berries, this is good at room temperature, but pop it in the fridge for a bit and you'll never look back. The ultimate cool-drinking summer red? Mais oui!”


  • Malma Finca La Papay Pinot Noir

    “In the rare and elusive "Great Pinot Under £15" category. Pepper spice and cedar wood accompany juicy cherries and cranberries. A real delight, like eating crunchy plum skins covered in soft, velvety milk chocolate. We are pretty pleased we found this one. You will be too”


  • Domaine Jaeger-Defaix Rully Rouge

    “Big Burgundian pinot with all the old school trimmings thrown in. The smell of a farm on yonder hill, dark cherry, posh smoked bacon, coffee and pepper. A really giving and deliciously decadent wine.”


  • Domaine Fichet Bourgogne Rouge

    “Don't be put off by the somewhat 'generic' Bourgogne Rouge name. Rich with red cherries, red plums and red berries, this is good at room temperature, but pop it in the fridge for a bit and you'll never look back. The ultimate cool-drinking summer red? Mais oui!”

MEET THE PRODUCERS

Domaine Fichet

Run by brothers, Pierre-Yves and Olivier, Domaine Fichet has raised the quality level of their wines in recent years by investing in a new modern winery.
Located in Igé in the Maconnais region with an unique terroir, a high content of white limestone in the chalk and clay. The microclimate brings extra humidity and morning fog. Now with a new winery and a general willingness to modernise their approach, the brothers’ wines have continued to improve year after year. Francis Fichet was one of the first to plant Pinot Noir in the highly Chardonnay dominant region. His original plantings are now over 30 years old and are blended with Pinot that Pierre-Yves planted in 1994.
