Straight to the Pool Room – July 2014

Churton Pinot Noir 2011

A while back, at the conclusion of an enjoyable session tasting several Burgundies, I was introduced to this Marlborough Pinot, available for a ridiculous price via Blackmarket.co.nz…

Churton Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011 – $ – drink 2015-2017. from an small organic and biodynamic producer. Various critics have given this wine 4.5 stars, 90/100 etc. Fantastic value.

  1. I love a good Marlboro, Martinborough and Central Otago Pinot… And quite often, they are very well priced, even in US 🙂

      • Some of the readily available Oregon Pinot are not that good… And for the many of the better ones, they are either very expensive ($60+), or made in the minuscule quantities (200 cases or so), or both – it is not easy to find good and reasonably priced Oregon Pinot even in US, definitely on the east cost where I am…
