Does nothing to supress my urge to visit this site. Looking very good this 2017 vintage, even if it warmer than average – not always great for the variety at hand – but the seasonal warmth only tells one aspect, for the preceding winter was gloriously wet, given the dormant vines a good drink. And in return how they reward us.
Sour Cherry, Leaf matter, meaty, with mushroom skins. Beautifully savoury Pinot Noir.
Soft, silken – like a scarf, threading its way across the palate. Has a slight woody, burnt ends and undercurrent of caramelisation to it. Further reinforcing its savoury credentials, backed up with a resurrection of fruit presence. Impressive.
