Joséphine Dubois Grand Réserve Pinot Noir 2009

I was enthusiastic to pop open Josephine Dubois Grand Réserve Pinot Noir 2009 since I tend to enjoy budget friendly French Pinot Noir. I spent about an hour culling the web for details on the winery and vineyard, but to no avail. It’s the first time in my review history that I haven’t been able to find any producer information. I did discover that it was imported by Monsieur Touton, which was established over 30 years ago by Guillaume Touton, a native of the Bordeaux region in France. The distribution company focuses on delivering quality wines at affordable prices around the world.

Transparent cranberry-garnet in colour, alluring aromas of raspberry, chocolate and vanilla rose from the glass. Black cherry and raspberry flavours were accompanied by invigorating black tea tannins in the smooth, medium body. Spicy white pepper and traces of dried cherry lingered pleasantly in the moderate finish. Simple and elegant, this is a good glass for the table.
