Slight brick-ruby color; nutmeg, toast, dusty baking spice; forest berries, wild strawberry, good perfume, good depth, fine tannins, silky, medium + concentration, good balance; starting to come along.
France 2011 - Côte d'Or; 7/8/2011-7/13/2011 (Beaune): Tasted at the Domaine. Pretty nose of red berry fruit with floral and mineral notes. Tight flavours of cool dark pinot fruit with good acidity and firm tannins. Nose shows some elegance. I was hoping for more form this wine. Maybe it’s at a stubborn stage right now. Very good. 88+
Lovely spices and floral notes in the nose; I detected forest fire-- smokey notes in the aromatic nose accompanied by faint cherry and strawberry smells. The mouth is vibrant with tart spicy cherry, lots of supporting acidity giving nice intense cherry fruit flavors; fine tannins, this is really excellent.
