Tasting Notes

A gentle touch of wood frames the elegant and ultra-refined high-toned red pinot fruit nose that also evidences notes of spice, earth and soft floral nuances. There is ample minerality on the rich, sweet and sappy middle weight flavors that are almost delicate yet focused, pure and sneaky long as the flavor impact is really impressive. A strikingly intense wine of finesse and understatement in 2006 that still isn't quite 100% ready yet it's sufficiently close that this could easily be enjoyed now if desired. Drink 2018+

Here too there is a gentle touch of wood spice framing the more elegant and ultra refined high-toned red pinot fruit nose that also evidences ample minerality that continues onto the rich, sweet and sappy middle weight flavors that are almost delicate yet focused, pure and sneaky long as the flavor impact is really impressive. A strikingly intense wine of finesse and understatement in 2006.

Good bright, dark red. Captivating aromas of red cherry liqueur, rose petal and smoky oak. Fine-grained and suave in the mouth, displaying more energy and finesse than the foregoing grand crus. The sharply delineated red fruit and spice flavors are nicely lifted by a floral topnote. Very intensely flavored wine with a broad, subtle finish and a serious tannic spine for aging.
