Relativt lukket. Svake aromaer av røde/mørke bær, litt spice og litt tre. Hint av pels (?). Alt er veldig subtilt her, men rett så elegant. Flott slank munnfølelse med god fruktkvalitet og fin friskhet. Igjen ligger det på den elegante siden. Maskulin og elegant, hvis det er lov å si. Lang og fokusert finish hvor frukten kommer fint frem. Godt merkbare fine tanniner. Nydelig vin som godt kan ligge trygt i kjelleren. 91p+
Drunk on Christmas Day - tasting note not contemporaneous. Quite an evolved colour. Slightly closed nose, but gives up some red fruit and some minerally undertones also. Not necessarily for everyone but appealing to me - quite masculine Pinot. Quite "correct" and medium-bodied on the palate. I possibly expected something more gutsy, although this is not necessarily a criticism. Perhaps lacking slightly in fruit. But good sappy tannins and a long mineral finish, combined with acidity to give it poise, make this very good with food. Overall, quite a conservative Old World style of Pinot - which is entirely unsurprising I suppose. Wait a while before trying another: this was possibly slightly closed. Good plus.
