Tasting Notes

A perfumed and very pretty nose features notes of both red and dark berries along with subtle hints of spice, earth and lilac. There is a lovely sense of vibrancy to the well-detailed and delicious medium weight flavors that exhibit a discreet minerality before concluding in an appealingly textured and refreshing finish. While this should reward a few years of cellar time I suspect that it will be accessible young as well. Drink: 2019+

Score: 89Allen Meadows, (62), April 2016

(this was Lafon's only Pinot Noir site spared by hail in 2014): Good medium red. Sexy scents of raspberry, rose petal and earth. Juicy, savory wine with real gulpability; red fruit flavors are nicely framed by harmonious acidity. This lively Monthélie wine finishes with firm but fine tannins and a lingering cherry note. It was the first 2014 to be bottled--in March of 2016. 2018 - 2023

Score: 89Stephen Tanzer,, March 2017

No hail. Already in tank. Bottled spring 2016.
Lovely round fruit even if a little taut and skinny on the end. Needs to flesh out a bit.2018 - 2024
