In Store Tasting 4/16: 2009 Domaine Jean-Marc Bernhard Pinot Noir

Today we are trying a 2009 Pinot Noir by Domaine Jean-Marc Bernhard from Alsace. I think this is the first Pinot Noir we have ever carried from Alsace and the first I have ever had myself. This starts off with some nice aromas of earth and raspberry. Built for food, the wine has flavors of earth, root vegetable with a touch of sour red fruit.  I expected strong similarities to Burgundy but this has a character all its own.  An interesting alternative to your typical Pinot Noir.

Today we trying the 2007 Fattoria Le Pupille Morellino di Scansano. Orginally a suggested retail price of $21.99, we were able to secure a deal with our distributor so we can offer it to our customers at $8.99. Has some nice aromas of leather, herbs and cherry on the nose. This gives way to some big flavors of black raspberry, cherry and tar, ending with a strong mineral finish.  Very long finish for an wine at this price point.
