    January 4, 2017 - on the nose you find loads of red berries, especially wild raspberries, earth, and a fine leathery tone.
    Elegant on the palate rather than complex, long and almost understated. Very nice balance between fruit and acidity. Really nice, beats many 1er Cru Burgs and some GCs as well for that matter.
    Not sure how long it will last though, drink within a couple of years.

    July 13, 2014 - NOSE: Very rich. Crushed raspberries and cherry.

    TASTE: Medium body, "dark" raspberry taste, liquirice, fresh, quite high acidity. Medium length aftertaste.

    June 9, 2013 - My wife falls head over heels for this, and so do I ... This is Pinot Noir in lovely shape. It's light but not void of power, and above all it mixes purity with complexity in a way that i think only Pinot, Nebbiolo and Grenache succeeds with. Nosewise this starts with red currant, extremely light cherries and wonderful strawberries. Herbs, licorice, a feeling of walking through a pine forest in spring. Yes, the oak adds a touch of very elegant exotic spice. Time to drink, and everything your nose has told you is confirmed. It's so easy to drink with a bunch of fruit and an acidity that's closely related to blood oranges. But there is depth here too, it's almost like you're drinking in 3D ... Just a dream with our lamb filet with fresh tarragon and chanterelles. I don't do points, but if i did, this is 94-95-ish.

    December 27, 2012 - In a very bad place right now or just a bad bottle? Major disappointment. Did not finish the bottle.
