Domaine Matrot Bourgogne Rouge 2018
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
An attractively scented nose of red and dark berry liqueur and earth is both ripe and fresh. The rich, suave and relatively full-bodied flavors possess unusually good concentration for the genre and while there are backend traces of rusticity and warmth, overall this is really quite good.
