| ||Tasted by demiurg on 10/10/2014 & rated 89 points: good mix of fruit and earth (422 views)|
| ||Tasted by tbriggs on 1/9/2014: Very open with cherry fruit, granite, and lots of acid on day one. Day two the fruit was much more quiet with earth and mineral present. Rebuy: maybe. (834 views)|
| ||Tasted by Ben Christiansen on 2/8/2013: Big and ripe and rich, this was fully day two, which I don't think was doing it a favor. So taste a fresh bottle next time. (1841 views)|
| ||Tasted by chcook on 2/2/2013: Restaurant purchase from memory. Color light garnet. Nose showed bright red fruits with earth and minerality. this started a bit brisk but with some air smoothed itself out and picked up some weight on the palate. Very classy Marsannay, was a perfect foil for my 5 spice red snapper and carrot whip. (1514 views)|
| ||Tasted by ejca on 7/6/2012: Let decant for over two hours but never really reached its potential. Tried it the next day and felt like we missed something. I think it just needs time and it will be a fantastic wine. (1908 views)|
| ||Tasted by TheSohs on 6/21/2012 & rated 88 points: Tight nose of cherries and bramble. |
Light, delicate with a playful balance of floral and dark cherry notes. I felt that this wine showed better a little chilled - reducing some of the acidity we got at room temperature and letting more of the sweeter strawberry notes come through.
Drinkable now but am saving our second bottle for a few years from now. (1656 views)
Pinot Noir Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
