Details

98 points James Suckling An extraordinary one-hectare parcel of pinot noir planted in 1964. Deep golden hue. An extremely rich and majestic nose with savory notes of cocoa, smoked mushroom, forest floor earthiness, grilled hazelnuts, orange marmalade, spiced cherries, plums and spiced bread. Wildly complex! The palate has a languid, toasty core of flavor with a deep warming wash of spices, toasted almonds and grilled hazelnuts. Freshens to dried cherry and plum pastry leading into a smooth and vinous finish. Striking depth and grace. Drinks like an old Burgundy. Disgorged in June 2014. Drink now.
