This wine was a gift from a friend that we exchanged wines. He has very expensive taste. lol, this is a Pinot Noir from France. Coming from one of the most expensive, rich region of Burgundy. Here are some notes:
- 100% Pinot Noir, on clay, marl and limestone rocks.
- Aged for one year on average, followed by several months in vats to stabilize the wine before bottling.
- Brilliant ruby robe, raspberry. A striking nose, with an aroma of red fruit, blackcurrant. Fresh on the palate, with peppery notes
La Fussiere is a large Premier Cru vineyard at the very southern end of the Cote d'Or, within the Maranges appellation. It is located on the south-facing vineyard above the village of Dezize-les-Maranges, and is planted mainly to Pinot Noir with a small amount of Chardonnay as well
We finally get around to tasting the blue wine from Spain. Since this is a sunny spring afternoon, it was a good time to pop it open and have a clear palate to see what I can compare it to. Word on the street is it is too sweet and not a good regular drinking wine. Well, I'll be the judge of that Mister.
A fatal accident at a remote survivalist training camp sends participants into a panic - and sets the stage for a chilling showdown. Sounds good don’t it. Or does it. Well It starts off like a bunch of regular anarchist learning to survive out in the wilderness until some real f’ed up stuff happens and the main protagonist freakin dies. So how does this end? Its in French so the intensity of watching this closer is recommended. A Canadian movie as well
