Slightly reductive nose. Flavors of pretty red pinot fruit with some hints of licorice and earthy notes with soft, chalky tannins on the finish. Not overly complex but a very good Bourgogne with a very good qpr.
France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru
Very green, vegetal nose with a very vegetal presence on the palate. Some pretty red Pinot fruit and licorice make an appearance on the mid palate but over all the fruit is quite reserved. The tannins on the finish are also very green and firm. Interesting but not my favorite vintage.
France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Corton Grand Cru
Same firm green vegetal components as the 1er Des Vergelesses but the red Pinot fruit has significantly more depth and heft, helping the green notes fade into the background. Quite nice for the vintage.
The lone domestic Pinot of the night. Much darker and more extracted than the burgundies. Rich dark Pinot fruit, earth and licorice. Noticable but not intrusive oak. All in all, quite nice and the favorite of the Pinot flight.
