Very complex with a huge acidity backbone. This is begging for shellfish or triple cream brie (Had it with crab legs as the main course and Brillot as the appetizer). Fruit component and complexity really shine when this wine is drunk closer to red wine temperature. It is more lively, with a pineapple and marshmallow sweetness that emerges through the acid when drunk around 60 degrees or so. Great medium-long finish with chalky minerals lingering in a most pleasant way. Very enjoyable.

Nose has some barnyard and blueberries. On the pallet there is fruity black fruit and some velvety yet bitter tannins. Mouth texture is good with a fairly lengthy finish that has some tannins linger on the tip of your tongue and the fruit profile turns somewhat lighter. An interesting wine. I'm not sure of the mix of Cabernet Franc, but it is definitely present on the pallet. I'm not convinced this wine is on the decline just yet. I'm hopeful that it will present a more jointed presentation in a couple of years.

I've had bottles costing double the price that were no where near as good and as complete a wine. Overall an old-world wine but with some modern edge.. smoke, leather, scorched earth and ripe black fruit. Exotic yet utilitarian at the same time. More details to come as I consume additional bottles. Fantastic find.

For color the wine is starting to show some age, crimson with some slight bricking along with some presentable sparkle. On the nose a prominent sweaty note that quickly dissipates to some cherry and bergamot, followed by wild flowers and apricot. On the palate, medium-big structure with nice lift and a smattering of tannins in just the right amount. Medium light weight with cherry and strawberry and a splash of green tea. Medium length finish with a touch of acidity hanging on and some prominent tannins for a Pinot. This wine needs more time. At first opening it was disjointed as previously mentioned. 3.5 hour decant and this wine really came to life and was enjoyable. I would give this wine another 1.5-2 years in bottle and try again. Nice QBR imo.
