This is part of a series of posts about the wines offered at Slows BBQ during the summer of 2015.
2012 Pinot Noir, Evesham Wood, Le Puits Sec
Arguably the finest Pinot Noir made outside of Burgundy comes from Salem Oregon. Le Puits Sec means “the dry well” and its red emerges entirely from 3 acres on the 8-acre estate vineyard (so bottles are scarce.) Since 1986 Le Puits Sec has been farmed without chemicals or irrigation. The fruit it produces is supple, balanced, and thought-provoking. Most importantly it is a smashing drink with BBQ. Think of this selection as an indulgence for the wine-loving staff and owners of Slows, and one we are eager to share with you.
This wine is offered only by the bottle. The price is artificially low at $40 for carryout and $60 on-premise. (standard retail in Michigan would be more like $50)
This is a tiny winery with a real philosophy and one that’s adhered to. Never lip service!
