Notes of oak characterize the nose on this wine, aligning themselves with ripe cherry. The palate fleshes out that lovely cherry note, countering the oak and delivering good structure and freshness. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
Les Tourelles de la Crée is crafted by the renowned winemaking team of the venerable 15th Century wine estate Château de la Crée, located in Santenay. Knights Templar Cuvée is a blend of Pinot Noir sourced from compelling vineyards throughout the Côte de Beaune, a region once farmed by the legendary Knights Templar after their return from the holy crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries. Featuring Pinot Noir vines exceeding 100 years in age, this wine is a pure and authentic expression of ancient Burgundian terroir.
The 2017 Les Tourelles de la Crée, Côte de Beaune ‘Knights Templar Cuvée’ Pinot Noir, extremely expressive upon approach, displays strawberry and red raspberry aromas. The palate is awash with delightful red fruit flavors and fresh tobacco notes.
