Dark garnet core with slightly matte/rusty rim. At first very warm soil and meat driven aromatics with a somewhat lithe/closed palate. With air. Big warmed raspberry fruit that leaned toward baked but never became cooked in character. Herbs, sweet game and meat, more fresh soil and potpouri. Fantastic aromatics, not a hint of booze either (14.5%). Palate repeated nose with sweet fruit that never became stewy but pranced on the precipicee of profuse all night. Comfortably oppulent. Huge, mouthfilling, yet perfectly balanced with medium acidity and fine, well integrated tannins. Long. Outstanding. Had next to 2000 Bologna Ai Suma Barbera which seemed a tad try hard. Lamb Shanks were at home here. Really enjoyable wine. Lots of life ahead of it.

This was wonderful and was drank nect to Coquelet's '07 Chiroubles. The Lapierre won out with greater delicacy and persistence. A complete wine. Rocks and flowers with wonderfully sweet gamay fruit both aromatically and on the palate. Fresh a vibrant with tensity and verve to the long, savoury fruit. Beautiful and wish I had a case. Outstanding for it's utter drinkability.

Popped and poured with pepper crusted fillet. Showing some age, pleasant plummyness, slight balsamic and leather component adds interest. Still heavy overlay of vanilla/ginger bread icing. Black cherry, herbs and red plum fruit on palate. Sweet fruit but not over the top. Still grippy tannins. Solid.

Very good. Med vibrant red/ruby. Slightly confected nose at first which developed more savoury and real red fruit character with air. Fresh and vibrant with strawberry and pretty cherry notes complicated by herbs and a white pepper note. Decent grip with solid, fresh acidity. Stony minerality carries the well defined finish. Utterly drinkable and a wonderful, real, everyday wine that shoots from the hip. Well done.

Outstanding. Dull, red. Slightly cloudy. Lifted aromatics that move from mineral to real strawberry, clove and airy florailty. Oak seems very well integrated (drank next to Thomas 2005 which showed more apparent oak aromatically at the time) adding spice box and subtle smoke notes. Lithe and sweet with very nice acidity, sneaky, fine tannins and a long finish. A deft Cali Pinot and one I commend for swimming up stream. Low alcohol, femine and oh so pretty. Thanks Anthill!

Very good. Savoury, defined and intense aromatics. Lifted and clean with lots of interest. Oak very well integrated. Burgundian steminess with Marl. cherry and strawberry fruit. Restrained ripeness. Long and balanced. Up there with Rippon, Felton and Pisa. 3-5? years. Will wait another2 years min for next bottle.

(Notation on side of bottle may indicate the vintage as 1999) Outstanding. Pale ruby, watery rim. Profound aromatics,bright and fresh with a combination of flowers and earth that is at once reminiscent of Barolo and Burgundy. Savoury and weightless with great intensity and outstanding balance. Pomegranate, cherry and strawberry fruit. Drank in a group of somms and retailers and it slayed. One of the most interesting and utterly delicious wines ever encountered. The finish is focused and long with sweet fruit, minerals and singed herbs. High acid. Stunning.
