Central Vineyards Pinot Noir: record number of samples
Off to Sancerre on Thursday to research on article on Pinot Noir in the Central Vineyards. The research will include a major tasting of PNs, which has been kindly organised by Benoît Roumet, the director of the Bureau du Centre. It looks like I will be quite well occupied on the Friday as producers in the various appellations have sent in 166 different Pinot Noirs, which will be tasted blind. Benoît tells me that this is a record, so I’m very grateful to all those producers who have sent in wines.
