La Confrerie des Chevaliers du Tastevin (Vancouver) - Canadian Grand Conseil 2011 (The Sutton Place Hotel): Medium red in colour with slight traces of browning near the rim. Another fantastic nose—deep and pure with notes of dark raspberries, cranberries and spice. Quite a bit of acidity here with powdery yet firm tannins. The red pinot fruit flavours are almost fleshy, yet refined. Not as silky as the Charmes, but this isn’t far behind. And similar to the Charmes, this has great balance and should continue to develop for another 5 years easy, but there’s a lot to like about the way it’s drinking right now. Excellent.
