Domaine Brunet is located in Limoux region of southern France. Unlike much of Mediterranean influenced southern France, Limoux is a cooler climate that's influenced by the Atlantic ocean. This cooler climate creates a perfect area in France for pinot noir grapes outside of Burgundy. The bouquet presents impressive concentration and intensity with aromas of black cherry, vanilla, and subtle note of smoky toast. Incredibly rich and juicy on the palate with flavors of blackberry melting seemlessly into a backround of soft, velvety tannins.
This is the best old world pinot noir under $20 for sure. Grab it while the 2015 vintage lasts!
