Francois Labet VDP Ile de Beaute Pinot Noir 2022
93 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team
"Francois Labet VDP Ile de Beaute Pinot Noir offers all the charming silky red fruit and scent of Burgundy’s Pinot Noir but with more fruit and 'fat' around its bones. The warmer climate of Corsica ripens the Pinot Noir perfectly to yield this vibrant, versatile, super glugable Mediterranean "Burgundy" has great personality and represents amazing value for money. Imagine a combination of charming Pinot fruit and Rhone ripeness and you have Ile de Beaute Pinot Noir!"
