In keeping with their philosophy, Domaine A don’t always make a pinot noir, but the 2014 vintage was too good to pass up. Big, bright ruby in the glass, the pour rewards with fresh red cherry and a suggestion of tart baked rhubarb. The mid-palate brings a wave of black forest cake and some savoury spice, with a medium body with plenty of flesh. Suggestions of tar and a soft minerality round things out. Open a bottle with anything rich and decadent; crumbly cheddar, rabbit stew, pheasant or coq au vin.
