In the Glass


Brilliant, medium ruby color.

Medium-bodied and nicely balanced with a vibrant texture.

Cool Factor


Affordable Pinot Noir from Burgundy is practically a unicorn so this wine is certainly cool in our view.

Value Grade


Pinot Noir is rarely inexpensive so a tasty Pinot from the source selling at $20 is a value.


The house of Prosper Maufoux has been crafting wines since 1860. This vibrant Pinot Noir is carefully harvested and cold soaked for four or five days to extract color and complex aromatics. After a traditional fermentation the wine is rested in lightly toasted oak casks. This Pinot delivers a fine marriage of fruit, spice and oak with accents of earth. This wine can age for a couple of years but it is built to drink today.

How to Enjoy

This straight-forward wine needs nothing but a glass but it pairs beautifully with pan roasted duck breast.
