Three Shades of Pinot Noir

Onwards into September! I’m still clinging on to some of the late-summer heat, so I thought we’d start the week with one of my favorite rosé’s, Leitz’s Pinot Noir rosé from the Rheingau in Germany. Bright and snappy with classically Pinot-esque red cherry fruit, this quaffable example has plenty of acidity on the back end. I’ve got a couple of 3Ls as well as some magnums if we get through the Jeros!

To round out the week, we travel to Pinot Noir’s famous ancestral home—Burgundy. It is still early in the fall, so instead of creeping into back vintages, I thought we’d check in on the most recent: 2017. Already a deeply pleasurable vintage, 2017 is showing quite nicely and the more youthful cuvées are worth checking in on.

We’ll pour a 3L of Pataille’s Bourgogne Rouge from up in Marsannay in the north then frolic admidst the exotic spice of Bertheau-Gerbet’s Vosne-Romanée village out of magnum. Should be a fun week here at Bar Boulud. Come visit!
