Collin-Bourisset La Romaine Pinot Noir 2015
Vibrant and fresh aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries follow through to a hint of oregano and blackberry on the nose. Medium weight with lifted acidity, the palate shows dark fruits woven between notes of mocha and a kiss of oak, leading to a smoky, mineral-laced finish.
Established in 1821, Collin Bourisset is located in Creches-sur-Saone at the edge of the Beaujolais and Maconnais districts. Beyond producing its own in-house wines, Collin Bourisset is the exclusive producer and marketer for the Hospices de Romaneche-Thorins as well as the Hospices de Lyon. Since the Medieval Ages, hospitals in Burgundy accumulated rows and soon hectares of vines as payment for their care of growers and their families. In the last century, and until 1926, each vintage of the Hospices was sold at public auction to provide funding for the care of the sick.
