Not going to rate this wine. Wasn't showing. Either a bit of a dumb phase right now or simply WAY tighter than i expected. Opened, decanted for 40 minutes, consumed over 3 hours. Tight and all tart fruit. Almost showing nothing. odd.
This wine has changed a lot since I drunk it over 12 months ago. Previousl bottles austere and lacked any depth or interest even though you could tell there was quality. Now it has started to blossom with fruit evident and nicely intergrated tannins. It didn't change over 3 nights - very unusual for a wine at this price point. Long life ahead.
This wine has changed a lot over the last 12months if this bottle is any indication. Previously extremely austere, promised a lot but delivered little even after decanting. Now we have some fruit, tannin and mouth feel. Remained consistent over 3 nights - unusual for a wine at this price point. This will only get better and better.
Absolutely beautiful wine. Nice ripe fruit given Chalonnais here...bright cooked strawberry and raspberry with hints of pomegranate but not overhwleming. This wine is austere with such elegant herbal notes - bay leaf and mint with hints of cool dirt. Good minerality and high acid. keep sipping and sipping... There is an absolute perfect kiss of wood on this too to create an elegant round mouthfeel...this pinot is excellent for the price
