Even though fall is officially here, who says we have to darken our taste buds? We prefer lightening things up, especially when it comes to wine.
Joseph Drouhin’s LaForet collection, named after a forest in France, knows how to do just that with its pinot noir and chardonnay wines. Some of the wine by LaForet is aged in oak barrels, which results in a rich aroma but not overly woody flavor.
The chardonnay has some nice citrus aromas that finish off with hints of honey and vanilla while the 2011 pinot noir taste of fresh fruits, including raspberries, black currants and red currants.
