Hautes Côtes de Beaune (Red)

For the money, this is a beautiful Pinot Noir on the lighter end of the spectrum with vibrant berries, rose petals and hints of sweet spice. A perfect summer/spring red, it shows lively acidity, a light to medium body and a fresh, tangy finish. From a producer that uses no fining or filtration in the south of Burgundy, this is outstandingly clean and pretty for the price. A good wine if you need a white for pairing but fancy a red!
