Jamie Kutch, winemaker in Northern California producing Pinot Noir at Kutch Wines in Sonoma. Kutch is a member of "In Pursuit of Balance," a group of wine producers focused on making balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California.
"I have been consuming my fair share of Lapierre Morgon recently. Produced from the Gamay grape in Beaujolais, I found myself falling quickly in love with the delicate and feminine character of this wine which is planted on granitic gravel soils," says Pinot Noir specialist Kutch. "The seductive nose forces you to pay attention as the palate dances with lovely pure and clean flavors. Bottled with very low levels of sulfur and farmed organically, the wine is incredibly expressive. Finally, at $23 a bottle, it's a steal!"
