  • The wine is clear and bright with a medium garnet colour. The nose is clean and developing, showing medium(+) intensity aromas of red fruits (raspberries, red plums), black fruits (dark cherries), pungent spices (black pepper, liquorice), oak (cedar) and bottle ageing (truffles, mushrooms). The wine is dry in the mouth with a medium(+) mouth-watering acidity. It has medium(-) fine-grained tannins and a high slightly warm alcohol. It has a medium body and pronounced intensity flavours of red fruit (red plums), dark fruits (dark cherries), pungent spices (black pepper, liquorice), oak (cedar) and bottle ageing (truffles, mushrooms). The finish is long.

    It is an outstanding quality wine. It has a pronounced concentration well-balanced by the alcohol and the acidity, and a lingering finish. It also shows a complex nose ranging from fresh fruity aromas to bottle ageing maturity notes, including oaky and spicy aromas. Can drink now, but it has enough acidic structure and fruit concentration to continue developing more complex tertiary aromas over the next 3-5 years.

  • Have gone into a period of closing in, fairly tight and closed despite decanted 2 hrs before serving. Greenish tones. Will revisit in 2016

  • Drank by myself after being inspired by A Year in Burgundy. a documentary on few Burgundy growers, including Morey Coffinet. Interesting nose. A fight between sweet fruity notes and dark brooding earthy notes. Not sure if this wine knows what it wants to be. Tanins and acid still well represented but the sweetness of new world pinot noir missing. If I drank this at a restaurant, I would be very satisfied but expect more at home at retail prices.

  • Quite big up front fruit, maybe a touch too rich, probably a 2009 thing, but more red and black Cherries than what I experienced last time. Still some tannin and there is structure. Maybe a couple of years of development left but pretty close to peak. Nice but not great - although is FR's entry level.
