Wine Tasting Video: Pinot Noir from Burgundy & Chile

The Society’s Exhibition Saint-Aubin (Henri Prudhon) 2009, Burgundy, France (£9.95 The Wine Society – they’ve now moved on to 2010)

Viña Ventisquero Herú Pinot Noir 2009, Casablanca, Chile (£20-22 Davy’s, City Beverage, Laithwaites, Colchester Wine Company)
Broad-shouldered and juicy, with quite throaty raspberry, plum and even peach flavours, but it never gets too big, and there’s an earthy freshness running through the wine. Also, more subtly oaked than some previous vintages – tasty wine. S(-)
