A bottle of Chamonix 2009 Reserve Pinot Noir from South Africa


Chamonix 2009 Reserve Pinot Noir
Franschhoek, South Africa

Although the wine delivers pretty red fruit, its primary characteristic is a masculine note running from nose to finish, giving the wine some very aphrodisiac attributes at a wallet-friendly price. A hint of roses as well as lingering chocolate on the finish will make it a winner with the ladies. Serve with European comfort dishes from Gruyere grilled cheese to Boeuf Bourguignon.

Rating: 15.5/20
