Another bottle from Monsieur Trimpi - noticeably lighter in color than the Lapierre. Great pinot nose, with a nice dash o' funk accenting the red berries - an overused descriptive, but this is a very Burgundian nose.
Light-bodied, red-fruited, and maybe a little thin/dilute for my tastes - the palate can't quite match the nose, but still all in a nice wine on a Monday night. We'll see if this fleshes out with some air as well.
This bottle was a stunner. Pours very pale, but the crystalline Rabaja like cherry, strawberry, and rhubarb fruit leaps out of the glass, with nice mineral, rose, and just a touch of earth. Deceptively mid bodied and consistent across the palate. It carries some weight, with plenty of fruit and tannin, and has a pleasing persistent finish. Wish I had much more of this.
