In conjunction with Tonnellerie Saint Martin, Winemag.co.za is pleased to release the second annual Pinot Noir Report. There were 36 entries from 26 producers for this year’s competition and we included two examples of Burgundy as ringers.
The line-up was tasted blind (labels out of sight) by the three-person panel, scoring done according to the 100-point quality scale.
Wines to rate 90 or higher were as follows:
Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru 2015
Bosman Family Vineyards Upper Hemel en Aarde Valley 2017
Harmand-Geoffroy Gevrey-Chambertin 2015
As producer of the best wine overall, Creation won a new barrel of their choice from Tonnellerie Saint Martin.
