Stellar. A touch of that pretty Chinon violet flower and manure funk. St. Emilion-like concentration but this isn’t inky or extracted in the least. Luxurious, satin-like texture and tannins, with a subtly sweet finish. Feels a bit higher alcohol and less acid than some of the more classic Chinon vintages, but on the basis of the massive concentration and nascent complexity this will develop very well. Young but already approachable. — 8 days ago
Perfect with salmon! This is rich and creamy, with a full but not heavy mouth feel. It need to be with food to balance the citrusy acidity, but would pair with basically anything, especially stronger fish or roast chicken. — 24 days ago
This really should have been aired out for an hour before drinking. I drank it too early and it was quite the acid bomb. But then I let it swirl in the class and it opened up and was fabulous. Lots of aroma, nice backbone, very fine structured Pinot. — 21 days ago
Another good showing for the 04 lineup from chez B Morey... medium gold, nice weight. Leesy citrus nose including notes of tan spice, wet stone and a hint of petrol. Great mouth feel and finish. In a perfect drinking window and at peak. Paired well with all the fish dishes we had at Flying Fish Grill in Carmel. — 19 days ago
Big juicy rose! Watermelon sour patch kids but still refined and not cloyingly sweet. Wish I was drinking poolside. — 21 days ago
Nose is wonderful. Deep, sensual Lilacs. Violets. Blackberries. Cherries. A hint of unground black pepper. A mere hint of game. As this opens you get this psychotic swirl.
Palate is slightly spicy late early season cherries. Super vibrant. A very Burgundian feel. Just that balance. The mouthfeel. Deliciously drinkable. Silky tanins. As this opens the cherries are more perfect mid season.
