Value Pinot Noir at the LCBO - under $15
Looking for suggestions on under $15 value Pinot Noirs at the LCBO. Recently found a fantastic one - Lulu B '07 Pinot Noir, SW France for $12.95. Fabulous fruit and well balanced at a great price.
I'm finding that my palette is starting to veer towards more light-medium bodied wines, had enough of cough syrup. Has anyone else encountered anything worth noting?
Yeah, agree with Non Doctor that, for me at least, it's not possible to find a good (i.e., complexed, balanced) Pinot Noir at LCBO for under $15 but I suppose it depends on your taste. Nevertheless, for under $20, you might consider pinots from wineries in Victoria, Australia, such as Yering Station and De Bortoli, or New Zealand such as Kim Crawford.
I found a fantastic value on the regular shelves that's off the radar-so much so that I hesitate sharing it with everyone! However, the J&F Lurton Pinot Noir "Les Salices" from Languedoc is amazing for it's $11.95 price. It has a strawberry & smoky nose with good concentration and firm tannins-it's kind of a poor man's Beaux Freres or Goldeneye.
