Beautiful ripe fruit and elegant structure in this gorgeous Pinot Noir. Full-bodied, with sweet tannins and refined flavors of wild raspberries, cherries and cassis. Tannins clamp down on the finish.

Marey Monge on the label. Very light nose and lots of tartness but more body and concentration than the Leroy Romanée-St-Vivant 1997. Still chewy on the finish. Decidedly firm still.

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.
