Decanted for about 2 hours. The wine shows a nice combination of earthy minerals and pure red berry fruit. Supremely elegant with a touch of oak spice towards the finish. Certainly a little lighter styled then I was expecting and while it was a very enjoyable treat, it didn't blow me away like the same wine from Girardin did late last year.
A solid and enjoyable wine. This will never be confused for CA pinot and really highlights the concept of terroir transparency. An elegant and mineral driven wine that I really like. Still plenty of development to come; one to try again in 3 years or so.
