2015 Le Champignon Monterey County Pinot Noir

Sourced from several vineyards spread along California’s cool, sun-kissed Monterey coast, this Pinot shows subtle fruit flavors of strawberry and black raspberry, along with forest floor and shiitake mushroom. This is a lighter, more delicate style of the variety, with tea-like tannins on the finish. Match this wine with a wild-mushroom risotto for a sublime pairing.

Napoleon III demanded a classification of Bordeuax's best wines, which was completed in 1855, and was based solely on market prices for the wines at the time. The rankings have remained unchanged except for Château Mouton, which more than a century later successfully lobbied to be promoted from Second Growth to First Growth.
