Maison Paul Reitz 2007 Volnay (FR) ~ The estate is named after Paul Reitz who started making wine in 1872 and whose ancestors were vintners in Burgundy dating back to 1793. This beautiful Pinot from the commune of Volnay has round silky tannins, finesse & hints of forest fruits. Its velvety femininity predisposes it to sophisticated dishes of roasted fowl or well-defined cheeses. Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s a tradition! Every December we ask your lovely Portalis staff what they would like to drink for the holidays. Here’s what they said:
Jens: Ahhh, this year it’s Burgundy! I’d pick the Claude Nouveau Premier Cru or the Paul Reitz Volnay, either one. Festive, beautifully-made wines. Cherry, dark fruit. They pair with everything. Always a class act! Read more...
