Pinot Noir "Cuvée M," Laurent Barth - 2021

Item # 17338 750mL

About half of the grapes were destemmed before fermenting in tank. The wine aged for a year in older barrique barrels. This is not made every year, the production is minimal and comes from the estate's oldest Pinot Noir vines. A red wine for the table and an ideal pairing with lamb burgers.

Staff Pick Notes

Established since 2004 in Bennwihr, Laurent Barth has revitalized this 4 hectares of vineyard, mainly located on hillsides. All farmed manually and organically.

Treat yourself to this delightful Pinot Noir and experience it for yourself.
