The 2017 Les Tourelles de la Crée, Côte de Beaune ‘Knights Templar Cuvée’ Pinot Noir, extremely expressive upon approach, displays strawberry and red raspberry aromas. The palate is awash with delightful red fruit flavors and fresh tobacco notes. Texturally, this young Burgundian Pinot Noir is silky, with soft tannins and balanced acidity that leads to a long and persistent finish.
Notes of oak characterize the nose on this wine, aligning themselves with ripe cherry. The palate fleshes out that lovely cherry note, countering the oak and delivering good structure and freshness.
