Stefan Nielsen's Picks

Thanksgiving Picks

Nothing complements the flavours of a traditional Thanksgiving meal like a good bottle of Pinot Noir. But not all Pinots are made equally! This offering from Jean Fournier is a beautiful bottle that offers lifted aromas of crunchy cherries, tart cranberries, juicy pomegranate, savory game notes, forest floor and a kiss of vanilla. Well-integrated tannins lend a silky smooth texture, an elevated degree of acid adds welcome freshness, biodynamic farming and a low-intervention approach in the winery keeps things lively, sustainable and endlessly interesting. This is a wine-lover’s wine and will be a guaranteed showstopper on your dinner table this fall.
