Tête de Cuvée Pinot Noir 2019, Bouchard Finlayson

£98.35 per bottle

About this wine

Very limited in production (only 1932 bottles produced for the 2019 vintage), the Tête de Cuvée label presents Bouchard Finlayson’s cameo selection of the top Pinot Noir barrels from any particular vintage.  Brilliantly pure with fresh cranberry and juicy plum aromas that weave through savoury exotic spices. Powered by sleek and well-defined tannins, the wine glides elegantly across the length of the palate. A finely textured core of earthen salinity leads to a lasting finish.

Ageing potential: Best from 2022 through 2032.

Serving suggestion: Pairs beautifully with the special moments in life – anniversaries, birthdays and family gatherings. Consider a fragrant crab or shellfish risotto, succulent and crispy
fried duck breast or a classic Christmas turkey with cranberry sauce.

    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."
