Wine EnthusiastFrom estate-grown fruit dotted around the appellation, this wine shines in a fresh approach to tannin and savory-laced black cherry, seasoning it with clove, earth and black tea. Its length impresses, with the finish vibrantly spiked with cardamom and cola spice.

Wine AdvocateA multitude of Pinot Noir clones - many Dijon clones, but also the local selections from Roccioli, Swan and Pommard - the 2014 Pinot Noir was aged nine months in 100% French oak, of which 30% was new. This is a Premier Cru, Côte de Beaune-like style with notes of fruitcake, sweet cherries and strawberries, earthy spiciness, lush ripeness, ripe, round tannins and a medium-bodied, long finish. This is a sexy, Côte de Beaune look-alike to drink over the next 3-4 years.
