Domaine Drouhin, 2007 Pinor Noir

The spice of this glass of wine combined perfectly with the spice in the first few courses (Piment d’Espelette). It was YUMMY! And Fabulous!

I also picked it thinking it was fun to drink something from close to home while I was eating a meal that felt like I was miles away from home.

The winemakers notes:

2007 will long be remembered for the lovely, graceful growing season that led up to a rather stressful harvest.  Robert, Véronique and Philippe Drouhin literally spent three October weeks in a high-stakes chess match with the vineyards.  In the end, a year’s worth of superb viticulture and a month of microscopic attention to detail allowed for a very successful vintage.  It’s been easier before and since, but vignerons live for the challenge.
