A bright shade of red and see through. The nose rings of pomegranate, sweet cherry and clove. The palate is very smooth and soft- the fruit is vibrant and the acidity is very gentle. It’s all primary flavors for now, loads of red fruit and some backend tannins. The midpalate is tart, with more pomegranate and some rhubarb. The finish is very sleek and easy going- more lingering flavors from the midpalate and a nice spike in the very fine-grained tannins. This wine is young and has many years to go. I’m thinking it will be very nice as a mature Burgundy. 91 points for this very lithe Pinot Noir. Drink till 2033, but cellar if you like some secondary flavors. At over $100 it’s a pricy addition to the cellar, but then again- Burgundy is never cheap. 3 stars. Salut….
