#109 Pinot Noir, Laetitia, Estate, Arroyo Grande Valley, 2013 $28/$8
This wine comes from further south in California, but the Arroyo Grande vineyard site of this wine overlooks the Pacific so the climate is cool enough for quality Pinot Noir. The soil is volcanic and limestone, and was chosen because it is similar to the soil in Burgundy, the real home of Pinot Noir. This wine has wonderful fruit and texture, but offers more complexity and style over typical California Pinot Noir, and offers a nice balance between the new world fruit heavy style and the elegance, depth and complexity of French Burgundy. A very good wine.
