Pinot Noir on Clay Soils 2017, Catherine Marshall Wines

£17.95 per bottle

About this wine

In contrast to Cathy’s Pinot Noir on Sandstone Soils, this, formerly known as the Reserve, comes from heavier clay soils; the resultant berries carry a deeper, more brooding character displaying layered, textured truffle savouriness and earthy forest floor interwoven with concentrated black cherry compote harmoniously supported by mineral tannin.  Very Chambolle-Musigny in style, there is extra depth and masculinity here, without the wine ever suffering as a consequence. This is first rate, expansive Pinot Noir that pairs well with glazed duck, mushroom risotto, boeuf bourguignon, lamb, coq au vin, venison and ostrich.

    string(578) "If Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of wines then Pinot Noir is the wine of kings. So delicate, pure, feminine and graceful, it is arguably the finest variety in the world, responsible for the great wines of Champagne and Burgundy. Temperamental, yes, and difficult to cultivate, but can any other grape offer such dimensions of flavour or intellectual gratification? I would struggle to find one stronger! Summer berry compote flavours, with redcurrant and pink petal aromas, it is often pale in the glass, yet can offer depth and vigour simply unachievable from any other grape."
