Opens with a clear, fresh, elegant and subtle bouquet of ripe red berries and cherries. Rich and sumptuous on the palate, this is a juicy, round and fleshier Pinot compared to the refreshing 2016. The 2017 is fine and reveals a grippy, still slightly astringent tannin structure.
Opens with a deep, fresh and Burgundian bouquet of ripe yet elegant black berry fruit intertwined with a chalky finesse. Clear, fresh and silky on the palate, this is a tight, fresh and chalky, remarkably refined Pinot with a long finish. Tasted at the domain in September 2019.
Bright ruby red with garnet reflections and a slightly transparent rim, brilliant bouquet, pure black- & sour cherry and white currants, forest berries with a touch of herbal spice and decent toasting, soft at the beginning with moderate weight, then sappy, fresh and fruity carried by an elegant backbone of still juvenile tannins and animating acidity, elegant yet tightly woven with a long delicate finish.
Spicy hints of parsnips and anise in the nose, also detectable aromas of raspberries, simultaneously cool and engaging; juvenile and straight forward on the palate, bunch of red berries underlined by roasted flavors, soft texture, well-structured and balanced, elegant and lasting finish.
