Community Tasting Notes (9) Avg Score: 90.8 points

  • Medium clear red; smoked slightly caramelized nose, a bit colheita like; lean and elegant in taste, to the light side almost thin, but still lots of taste, light tannins; fine but no blockbuster

  • This was drinking very well after about 2 hours of double decanting, displaying rich red and dark fruit, earth and sous bois with exemplary depth and concentration. Quite masculine and abit rustic in style, the tannins on the longish finish are still quite firm, but not obtrusive. All in all, quite excellent.

  • The wine was tight in the beginning, but after 30min it opened up. Good nose. Dark rubish color. Good and lingering after taste.

  • On the nose perfume, leather, earth, floral notes. In the mouth raspberry and earthy/savoury notes. Beautifully balanced with a long finish. Lovely

  • This will only benefit from bottle age but my god it is good out of the bottle right now. I can't say enough about the quality of this wine. So I will leave you with this. If you think you don't like Pinot Noir or French wine or Burgundy or red wines or anything similar I dare you to buy this wine. I will reimburse you if you don't like it. Seriously. Find a bottle, go home, open and give it a go. If you aren't convinced I will happily send you an equivalent amount of Boone's Strawberry Farm wine. If you can't like this you probably are right to think you just flat out don't like good wine.

    For those interested in serious notes I will provide a few comments. Tannins are still very forward and noticeable. But the fruit is so wonderfully rich with such a massive foundation of really pleasant acid that a few years will only help to integrate the tannins. Please don't misread my comment on the tannins, they are smooth and pleasantly velvety at the moment.

    This wine has plenty of dimensions, character, depth and all those other things that make people who love Burgundy love Burgundy.
