I probably didn't do this wine any favors tasting it along with three Maison Harbour 2013's, a 1996 Domaine Trapet (Jean et Jean-Louis) Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle and a 1999 Maison Leroy Bourgogne. The stylistic differences between the wines was readily apparent. This wine was quite good but was outshine in this lineup.
a bit too much oak to start, then the fruit opened up and took over; evolving in the glass, with a few of the sips hitting sublime; intense/sweet/spicy wild raspberry, but now with some secondary flavors emerging;in a good place right now.
What an excellent Pinot. Bristling with dark cherries/kirsch without going over to the cough drop end of the pool. Weight was full but not heavy, color a nice ruby. Third 2007 WS in a week and this was a step up from both the Hirsch and the Allen.
