…..It is a matter of opinion of course. However, there is no doubt that Pinot Noir can produce some of the most exciting wines in the world.
Many customers question why wine made from Pinot Noir, in particular, is pricier than other varieties. Pinot Noir is notoriously difficult to grow and vinify. In a nutshell it is temperamental, challenging and delicate. It only thrives in specific terroirs creating a narrow range of environments and places that it can be realistically grown. It ripens relatively early, does not respond well to high yields and does not like too much sun – due to its thin skin, which can blister. Too little sun and it will not ripen.
Despite all of these difficulties the characteristics of Pinot Noir are seriously rewarding. Flavours such as ripe red fruit, strawberries, raspberries, cherries, heady sweet spice and gamey, earthy notes can dance from the glass. It can also be wonderfully classy and complex dependent on who makes it, and how it’s aged.To showcase this range of styles and flavours, we have put together a list of fantastic Pinot Noir wines from all over the world. Some are stunningly simple and some carry a huge amount of depth. We love them and know you will too!
Tupinier Bautista, Bourgogne Rouge 2017
was £17.49 NOW £15.75
The Tupinier family have been growing grapes in Mercurey since 1770. Since 1997 the domaine has been run by Manu Bautista who took over the reins from his stepfather Jacques Tupinier. This wine is aged in oak barrels of up to 3 years old. After 10 months of ageing in oak casks, the wine is blended in vats and bottled 2 months later.
The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge is drinking beautifully now with voluptous, fruity, light, round and delicate. On the palate there are hints of floral aroma’s like violets and lots of red and black fruits.
Don’t forget about Tupinier Bautista’s Mercurey wines. We have the Sazenay Blanc and three other Mercurey in stock. They are extremely good and great value to boot! Click here to find out more>>
Meyer Fonne, Vin d’Alsace Pinot Noir, 2018
was £17.75 NOW £15.99
The Domaine was founded in the late 1800’s by Felix Meyer and is still run by Felix’s great grandson, also Felix. The domaine now covers 12 hectares over 7 communes, namely Katzenthal, Ammerschwihr, Ingersheim, Riquewihr, Kientzheim, Colmar and Bennwihr. Within this is a great diversity of soil types and exposure which suits different grape varieties and is one of France’s greatest examples of terrior. The domaine is organic in everything but name and the wines really speak for themselves. They all possess a delicacy and complexity which is unique to the area. we hugely recommend trying them.
We think the Pinot Noir is absolutely delicious. It has a fine, elegant nose and packed full of red fruit. A fresh finish, full-bodied, and slightly spicy. It is very typically Pinot Noir and readily accompanies cooked meats, grills and white meats.

Beaujolais with a difference
The Beaujolais region of east-central France produces a unique, fruity and often lighter style of wine, which has seen a small renaissance since the mid 2000’s. As wine lovers move away from the intense, high alcohol, barrel-matured wines that have been all the rage of late, the soft, often immediately appealing style of Beaujolais has been in the perfect position to benefit. Beaujolais production is dominated by the Gamay grape and almost half is sold under the basic Beaujolais appellation which comes from Bas Beaujolais and the flatter land to the west. A further quarter of production is Beaujolais-Village, which comes from the hillier, northern part of Beaujolais and which pushes up into the foothills of the Massif Central. In this area there are 10 Crus (villages) considered distinctive enough to have their own appellation. From north to south they are: St-Amour, Julienas, Chenas, Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgan, Regine, Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly.

We are all very big fans of Jean Paul’s wines here at de Burgh. He challenges all the pre-conceived perceptions about Beaujolais wine. To show how these wines stand up against some of the best Pinot Noirs we have put some of Jean Paul’s wine on offer.
Jean-Paul is a very traditional winemaker who makes food-friendly wines of serious note. There is great complexity and concentration, along with the juicy fruit associated with Beaujolais, in his wines. He achieves this with minimum intervention and steers clear of manipulating the wine via carbon maceration, thermo-vinification and yeast inoculation which have become the norm in Beaujolais. He also believes his wines taste better at lower alcohol levels so does not add extra sugar (chapitalise) to raise alcohol levels.

Essential Festive Wines
We list just over 550 wines and have 250 on our website. We’re really proud to offer such a great choice of wines (do not hesitate to get in touch for a full list) but at this time of year, many of us can be fairly time poor. We find ourselves rushing around trying to get to one Christmas event or show after another, plus trying to work, get the decorations up, do a food shop and buy presents. Phew! To save a bit of time trying to navigate the huge choice of wines on offer, we have chosen 12 red and 12 white, all under £15 that will perfect for Christmas lunch, New Year parties or an easy drinking wine for slouching in front of the telly.
Aged to Perfection
Our Mature Wine Picks
‘Tis the season for indulgence (refer to pic above) but why not enhance those delicious family meals and dinner parties with some wines that have gotten better with age?! We at de Burgh, do not just like to drink wines that are a few years old, we also absolutely LOVE wines that are 10 or 15 years old and we have picked some real Christmas crackers for you….
Riesling Scharz 2007
The Scharz Auslese is an exceptional wine. It is not produced every year, only in the best vintages. Rich and complex on the palate with hints of that old classic Riesling characteristic- Petrol following on with flavours of orange peel tangerine dried apricot cooked nectarine orange marmalade. Off dry, but can be drunk anytime, but will go especially well with an abundant cheeseboard. A wine to be savoured. BUY
Chateau Moulin Haut-Laroque
We have tasted hundreds of Bordeaux over the years and this one really stood out. For a mature wine, we were bowled over by the quality, drinkability and price. Affordable and brilliant.
Chateau Moulin Haut-Laroque is a small family run estate who have a passion for making excellent Bordeaux. The vineyards are spread over 16 hectares in Fronsac with 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet France, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec- which happens to be at least 100 years old! The vines are on average 40 years old which gives real concentration of fruit. BUY
These are just few aged wines we have picked for the festive season. We have many more excellent cellared wines in our warehouse. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to see a full list.
