A wine full of charm: bright ruby colour and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance. Aperitif "finger food"? A light (almost) improvised dinner, lunch in a trendy restaurant, LaForêt is always in right place! Its a no brainer, LaForêt is at ease everywhere and with everything or almost! Pinot Noir and grilled chicken, pasta with pesto... simple things, a sign of times
Ageing - Stainless-steel vats (7 to 8 months). One to two year old barrels for the wines of higher provenance. Part of the wine is aged in oak barrels, and that changes a lot. Why? Because the marriage with oxygen happens more gently (as said by Véronique Drouhin!). Result: the wine is not overly woody but is rich in aromas".
Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is then completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
