RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

...aromas of raspberries, cassis, spices, smoked meats, rich soil tones and bergamot. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, velvety and fleshy, with a textural attack, ripe acids and melting tannins. Long and perfumed...

94-96Vinous / IWC

...luxurious bouquet of copious red cherry, crushed strawberry, orange zest and tangerine. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous red fruit, the richness offset by a fine bead of acidity. A little exotic but not ostentatious, revealing a tang of white pepper toward the persistent finish. Superb.

18+ Jancis Robinson

Intimately pretty with red fruit and a hint of orange. Rose-hip tang and just a touch of oak sweetness... Texture as much as aroma, lively nose and currently subdued... Very long.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
