Carneros, Avant Garde Pinot Noir, 2019

Carneros was co-founded by Taittinger in 1987 as a sparkling wine estate, but the quality of the Pinot demanded bottling on its own by 1992. Carneros is a sweet spot for Pinot, cooled by proximity to San Pablo Bay. Burgundian winemaking (open top fermenters and ageing in French oak) delivers an appealingly strawberryish glass of pure pleasure. Youthful but svelte; pure and jewelly but correctly dry; and with just a hint of umami savouriness hiding in the background, this needs the merest light chilling for maximum enjoyment. Now-2025

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
