RATINGS

98Wine Spectator

Indescribably concentrated and elegant at the same time, starting off deceptively smooth and gentle, then building up the intensity and vibrancy until it climaxes to a sensational finish that echoes cherry, tobacco, berry and vanilla...

17Clive Coates

...Yet a lot of class both on the nose and on the palate. Medium body....The finish was long and complex, and fresh. Very good indeed.

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.
