Tasting Notes

Exquisite fruit that, in contrast to certain recent vintages here, positively shouts grand cru caliber fruit. The flavor profile is one of a certain classy, middleweight fighter's grace and athleticism rather than a heavyweight's power. There are plenty of ripe, mouth coating tannins lurking beneath the pinot baby fat. Much like the 99 in that it's not especially big and certainly not highly extracted but it is very persistent on the finish with elegance and class to burn. An unqualified success.
