Baco Noir

Henry of Pelham Family Estate

Old Vines Ontario Baco Noir 2016

Pours inky dark. Big plums and dark berries bouquet. Wow, a big upfront burst of plums, tobacco and chocolate. Then a silky dryness into different layers of cherry, raspberries. Lush and layers of flavors. Then the sweet cherries come in at the end. Layers! — 7 hours ago

Doug's Vineyard-Romsey Pinot Noir 2018

Wow, this is a big pinot with a marvellous tannin.
Bright and quiet vibrant.
There's leather, cinnamon, forest floor, musk.
White pepper, very floral, a blueberry with raspberries around. The green balsamic side is a delicate Thai mint rather than a straightforward eucalyptus. Tobacco leaves and more notes given by the very present oak component.
I trust this wine will find a better harmony on the sweet side in a while, perhaps when the tannin will soften.
However this is very different vest from the 19s and the 17s., more complex already and even though I believe this wine will age gracefully for a bit I find it already on a secondary stage compared to the formers. I am very fascinated, it reminded of a Vosne from Dom. Laurent.
Long after taste, excellent!

If you haven't tried it yet I highly recommend it. To me he is in that little group of great young producer like Sami-Odi or Lucy Margaux. Plenty of character and flavour. 🙏

Clos Diconne Ladoix Pinot Noir 2017

Nice Burgundy wine, rather light. A nose of tangy red fruits typical of Pinot Noir (raspberry, redcurrant). Wonderfully conducted vinification, bringing slightly woody aging notes. The body is full, harmoniously blending primary and tertiary notes. The finish is developed, nothing more.

Joli vin bourguignon, plutôt léger. Nez de fruits rouges acidulés typique du pinot noir (framboise, groseille). Vinification admirablement conduite, apportant les notes d’élevage légèrement boisées. Le corps est étoffé, mêlant harmonieusement les notes primaires et tertiaires. La finale est développée, sans plus.

Oakwild Ranch

Toboni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Reddish in color with a wide reddish rim and medium plus intensity. Very pretty.

On the nose bing cherries, blueberries, spices, light oak, light red candy, earth and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with bing cherries, raspberries, blueberries, light wood, light earth, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 4 year old Pinot Noir from Sonoma County is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

Fruit forward and easy drinking with a spicy finish. Fun wine and very tasty now. Alcohol is nicely integrated by now.

Will continue to drink nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle. I gave it a light chill and had it by the pool. Paired nicely with a Double cream Brie cheese.

100% Pinot Noir grapes from a Single Vineyard. A small production of only 92 cases. Aged in 30% new oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Domaine Dujac

Morey Saint Denis Pinot Noir 2016

Beautiful floral bouquet and spices, touch of cinnamon and some black cherries. The wine is surprisingly quite open for a young Dujac, drinks really well, touch of oak and stems on the palate but used so judiciously, good structure but with fine grain tannins that are elegant and approachable, absolutely delicious and was gone in a flash. 90-91 at this level

Superbe nez floral, un peu terreux, avec des épices, canelle un peu et une touche boisée, mais de façon judicieuse, tout comme en bouche, belle structure, des tannins de belle texture, vraiment délicieux et surprenant pour un jeune Dujac, bouteille sifflée en un temps record. 90-91 à ce niveau

"En la Rue de Vergy" Morey-Saint-Denis Pinot Noir 2011

Superb Morey Villages that needed a bit of time in the cellar to open up some. All the power of a Morey with freshness and elegance, nice pure fruit, lovely and silky tannins, long delicious finish, really good especially given this cold 2011 vintage. 90-91 easy.

Superbe Morey Villages qui méritait du temps en cave pour s’adoucir un peu et s’ouvrir. Toute la structure d’un Morey avec du beau fruit très pur et des tannins veloutés sur une finale persistante, fraîcheur et élégance aussi, vraiment très bon, compte tenu du millassez froid aussi. 90-91

Lansdowne Vineyard

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Rosé and comfort food - heck yes! Growing up my mum made ‘sausage swirls’ which are pastry, sausage, potato and cheese swirls. And now they’re my go-to comfort food - however I add a jar of jalapeños 🌶 for a bit of a kick 🙌

I thought they’d be a great match to this bottle of Lansdowne 2019 Pinot Rosé which we were sent as a sample from Good Pair Days (thanks guys!).

Only a small quantity of this wine was made (177 cases in fact) due to extreme weather conditions that year.

If you want to give it a whirl, and/or try out the Good Pair Days experience, make sure to add the code “travellingcorkscrew” for a discount at the checkout 😉

I felt like I was watching the sunset 🌅 as the red-y orange like liquid was poured into my glass. On the nose it had me thinking about wild strawberries 🍓, tangerine and pink grapefruit. While in the mouth it’s smooth and hella delicious. Refreshing, comforting and bloody yum.

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it. By using the above promo code I will receive a small amount of commission.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Rippon Vineyard

Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2012

Earthy aromas with ripe plum notes - a very Otago nose albeit in the lighter spectrum. Same notes transfer to the medium bodied sappy palate. Not as full bodied as I was expecting. Quite Burgundian in weight and texture. Made by the equally earthy Nick Mills, owner and winemaker who made his presentation at Pinot NZ 2018 in Wellington in bare feet. Rippon is biodynamic and chemical free. I subsequently had a nice chat with him - a genuine bloke. Must be one of the prettiest vineyard scenes anywhere in the world sloping up from Lake Wanaka. Whilst this is classed as Central Otago this is not as full bodied as the Bannockburn/Felton Road district. — a day ago

Les Pezerolles Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass

An epic epic Pezerolles. Unreal nose. Superbly floral and just so gorgeous. Red cherry, black cherry, floral again, hint of licorice. So stunningly fragrant. Just bright and lifted. Palate is just oozing with gorgeous pure fruit. Red fruit driven with a black fruit edge to it. Sappy and so complete. What a long finish. Stoney aromas after some air. Palate has melty tannins that are so fine. Seems a bit closed initially but the super long finish makes me think this has more to say. 9.3 for now. I’ll be back.

This opened up after air end a day and became much more integrated. It’s a big wine in need of age but a smokeshow. 9.3 to 9.4 but with age will be 9.6
