    July 20, 2021 - Gorgeous nose, richer than the Roumier, lovely stone fruit. Also very young but beautifully rich.

    June 29, 2020 - Still very young and primary, though it is approachable and integrated now. Very good concentration of black cherry with strong spice and toasty herbs. Give this 5-10 years to gain some more nuance.

    September 14, 2019 - Decant for an hour.

    Appearance ; pale ruby, with legs and petillance

    On nose : med intensity, red fruit : strawberries, sour cherry, apple skin, pepper spiciness, thyme, tea leaf, a hint of mocha. With depth but not too complex, pleasant and comfortable.

    On palate : dry, med+ acidity, red fruit on front palate and then with remarkable sweet and fine med tannin, med body with med alcohol on mid palate, tea leafiness and savoury aftertaste with med finishing.

    This wine is a good one but not a very complex one. The sweet and fine tannin is impressive. This one is certainly an old world style Pinot and the elegancy of that is the signature of it. I suggest to drink it now as the complexity of the wine is not that significant. Cheers!

    July 8, 2018 - The first impression is a wine that is very meaty. Once the reduction subsides you get a pleasant muskiness and fresh red and blue fruits. It has some sweet earth and dried flower cation and is lacy in the mouth. Length is impressive and it is a wine of good proportion and balance.
