About the wine

Tasting notes

A stunningly pure Pinot Noir using fruit from Grand Cru vines that are declassified because they are less than 25 years old. Make no mistake, this is absolutely top tier Burgundy at its best.

Expert review

Fruit forward nose of red cherry, red berries, spearmint and white pepper. In the mouth it's tight, mineral and chewy with cherry, tart red berries, rose and herbal notes, deepened by a line of minerality and white pepper. It's elegant and already drinking beautifully now.
