Jean-Claude Boisset 2016 Bourgogne Pinot Noir “Les Ursulines” ($17.99)
Clear ruby color, shading to a clear edge. Subtle, clean red berry aromas lead into a fresh, acidic flavor that mirrors the nose, brisk and long. Label claims 11-14% alcohol. U.S. importer: Boisset America, St. Helena, Calif. (Nov. 22, 2018)
FOOD MATCH: Beef is its natural partner, but it would be fine also with cheese-based dishes or grilled chicken, duck, or for a Thanksgiving feast, roast turkey.
WHEN TO DRINK: The winery declares it ready to drink and recommends holding it for no more than seven years past the vintage.
