Ropiteau Pinot Noir

Balance, Rich French Pinot Opens Up Nicely Review Ropiteau Pinot Noir

Good Booze – Nice French Pinot –

At a great price, this wine from a French winery founded in 1848 is a perfect example of why owning a carafe or wine decanter pays off. Here’s a very nice little Pinot from France in a very attractive bottle that offers great color, with balanced, smooth, rich berry flavors if you follow our advice. We tasted this one three ways and the last was the winner. Pour it into a decanter, wait a bit and enjoy. Imagine a little Paris Bistro and all those classic dishes. Bon! Ropiteau makes several upscale Pinots at $40+ as well, by the way, so be sure to grab the right one off the shelf. Cheers!
