David Chandler: "If there's one thing David has learned from Jason during their many Adventures In Wine podcasts, it's that you simply can't have too many favourites. Favourites are Jason's life-blood; favourite regions and appellations, favourite vineyards, growers and restaurants; favourite sommeliers, even and of course, favourite grapes. Not as fruity as some reds or as tannin-rich as others, Pinot Noir defies easy definitions, but with a line-up of six excellent examples, Jason unerringly demonstrates that if you're prepared to eschew the galley isles of your local supermarket and delve just a little deeper into your pocket, you too, will be adding yet another varietal to your own list of favourites. In this episode our Pinot-driven pair sample a precocious 2022 Domaine Girard Pays d'Oc; a characteristically classy, 2018 Alsace Pinot Noir from Leon Beyer and a subtley-oaked 2019 Spätburgunder from Jurgen Hoffman, before tackling some bigger Burgundian beasts: a velvety smooth 2019 Fixin from Frédéric Magnien; a lambent, red-fruit 2017 Aloxe Corton from Gay et Fils and a masterful 2018 Gevrey Chambertain from Domaine Henri Richard."
