Tasting Notes

This wine has a nice colour with the bright and alert base that is so typical to the Pinot Noir grape; young, pleasant, flattering, claret red with the intense garnet of morello cherries. The legs are consistent, regular and smooth.
The nose has a wonderful freshness and vivaciousness which is highly expressive and open, quite complex, strongly aromatic whilst generously and agreeably fruity. There are the hints of small red fruit so typical to a healthy and perfectly ripe Pinot Noir grape: Raspberry, red-current, strawberry, morello cherry, black-current, cranberry, hawthorn blossom, rose-hip jam accompanied with a nuance of vanilla, wood-smoke, violet, hawthorn blossom and wild mushrooms.
On the palate, first-contact is harmonious, smooth, refined and elegant whilst retaining a generous and long-lasting flavour. The tannic structure fits in perfectly, giving the flavour a strong foundation and longevity. We really like the thirst-quenching, aromatic, fruity and floral expression of its final note.
