Me and my girlfriend love this wine, always said since day dot that it’s the best and even stated on the bottle it’s clearly the most popular and even better as Pinot noir is the healthiest red for you, chaterneauf de pape isn’t as good as this wine in my opinion !
Bought this as it had an IWSC Trophy Quality Award
Bought this as it had an IWSC Trophy Quality Award and was discounted in store. The price was attractive but having tried many Pinot Noirs this was a disappointment. The taste was bitter almost blackcurrant with a difficult to describe aftertaste. I will stick French Pinot Noirs in the future. Will not be buying again.
oxtail soup and sweaty socks
Notes of Heinz oxtail soup and sweaty socks - like a couple of other pinot noirs i bought for christmas. Thought they must be spoilt but google said there was some funny yeast and another organism that can make this wine taste like this. Anyway I cannot see how anyone would like it. Only the French one (Bouchard Grand Conseiller)was any good
Watery & Bland
It did not match the description on the bottle. Instead it was watery, bland & lacking in any real taste. One of the worst bottles I can recall trying! :-(
Perfect Pinot Noir for the price!
I've tried many more expensive Pinot Noirs, but can't find better quality and consistency elsewhere. Bright red fruits, with great balance. My go-to Red!
Very poor wine whatever the price! Tasted sour and a hint of vinegar. Used to be good- don’t know what happened!
I was not impressed by this wine. I found it had a "tang" to it which was not very nice. Will not be ordering again.
How are the mighty fallen!
Could not believe it when I saw this at £5, then I tasted it! Overpriced! This used to be a goto when picking a Pinot Noir (although the reserve version was better). This 2015 vintage is a deep disappointment - harsh, almost sour. Will wait for the 2016 vintage before trying again (one bottle from the store)!
Very good - until the price was hiked
I bought this at £5 a bottle and it was extraordinary value. Last week I thought about ordering more and wavered at £6 a bottle. Now it's £7 !! Well Tesco, reduce it to £6 and I'll buy a load more.
I really like the Cono Sur wines - although on the mass market side, they are of a much better quality than most and this Pinot Noir does not disappoint. It has great Pinot Noir flavours and complexity while still being relatively light. My only disappointment is that I have now tried the Cono Sur 20 Barrels Pinot Noir which is much more expensive, but a really amazing wine akin to good French burgundies.
