Nico's Drop Shot Pinot Noir

Nico's Drop Shot Pinot Noir

๐Ÿ‡Shhhh! Not every wine we drink is a hard-to-pronounce #Rkatsiteli from the wilds of Georgia, buried underground and unearthed to fuel our magic spells. ๐ŸŒ•๐ŸŒ–๐ŸŒ—๐ŸŒ˜๐ŸŒ‘๐ŸŒ’๐ŸŒ“๐ŸŒ”๐ŸŒš๐ŸŒSometimes we like Pinot Noir too! We like to snuggle! ๐ŸŒนNico too! Nicolas Potel is a wild winemaker from Burgundy who also has a nรฉgociant business called Roche de Bellรจne, where he gets the best fermented grape juice from his grower friends and bottles it under his own label. ๐ŸทFrom village level Burgundy to extremely fancy expensive stuff, he has a line on it all because he's extremely well connected to the best farmers/winemakers at home AND is extremely charming and friendly worldwide! Here's a delicious (and widely available at Ontario wine monopoly stores for 21 bucks) bottle for #lcboandu ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿท Roche de Bellรจne Cuvรฉe Rรฉserve Pinot Noir from Bourgogne is a sneaky beauty! Late summer flavours edging into early fall: ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿช๐ŸŠcherry, raspberry, cranberry, a little nutmeg and crunchy leaves, a back to school plan: ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ•ถ๐Ÿ‘ขthis year we are going to be a little cooler, a little smarter, wear over-the-knee leather boots and be the freshest smartest nicest babe in class while secretly stealing kisses with the baddest hottest misfit in the crackling forest on a crisp night. ๐ŸฆŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ‘ฏThese vines are a little older, wild fermented - #same - and farmed with respect for the environment. BONUS: Nico's wine has an Ontario connection or two! Our friend @normanhardiewinery worked his first vintage with Nico's dad - Ask Norm his nickname if you see him! And Nico LOVES coming to Canada and visits his importer friend Nic Pearce pretty often. ๐Ÿ’•He loves drop shots! ๐ŸปAnd having fun! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™‚๏ธAnd he will definitely invite you to the after party where all your favourite wine bar owners are gently snoozing on each other's shoulder at 5am drinking mini-bar vodka. He'll also probably invite you to Burgundy. ๐Ÿท๐ŸทSay yes!?! #alwayscastingspells ๐ŸŒน
