Tasting Notes

A very pure extract of red pinot fruit-suffused nose is liberally cut with earth and rose petal hints that are also trimmed in just enough wood to remark upon. The rich, full-bodied and tautly muscular medium weight plus flavors have an abundance of mouth coating extract that helps to buffer the prominent supporting tannins that make clear that an extended period of cellar time will be required if you wish to see this mineral-driven beauty at its peak. Drink starting 2031

Medium deep purple, the nose is a little more restrained than Henriā€™s Volnays. More severe, more restrained, with notable but noble tannins, a tight structure reflecting limestone more than clay. Strict but fine, give it plenty of time in bottle.
