When wine lovers speak of Burgundy reds, they are talking about the Pinot Grape which has been grown here for hundreds of years.
This region is absolutely the mecca of the Pinot Noir grape variety and is the region in which all of the other Pinot Noir's produced in other areas of the world are judged by.
"If you drink Pinot Noir, you Pinot Noir"
Domaine Poulleau is a small independent producer making exemplary Pinot Noir. I judge the quality of producers in Burgundy by the quality of their generic Bourgogne (Burgundy) Pinot Noir.
Most generic Burgundy Pinot Noir's are rarely less than $30/bottle. This wine is great value!
