Overall Tasting Notes & Impressions
A ripe and upfront fruity Pinot Noir, filled with opulent and pungent flavors of sour cherry and redcurrant, and featuring big burst of white pepper spiciness as well as gorgeous a sweet-tasting nutmeg character.
The palate is smooth and generous, full of tension between a dry crispy acidity, with elements of vegetal character tasting like strawberry seeds, and the opulence delivered by cherry liqueur flavors.
A luscious, easy-to-enjoy Pinot Noir Burgundy wine, with depth and layers of spicy complexity, the right amount of oaky goodness, and certainly the generosity of a luscious 2010 vintage.
