Du fruit noir et beaucoup d’épices sur ce nez aromatique et très élégant. La bouche est superbe, puissante mais avec des tannins de texture soyeuse, beaucoup de classe et d’élégance, belle finale de bonne longueur, tout en ayant encore beaucoup de temps au compteur.
Blind tasting lunch 2009 theme. Black fruit, lots of spices on the nose and palate that is superb, powerful with such a great tannins texture, class and elegance, the finish is very long and is gorgeous. Still very young. 94-95 — 8 months ago

Tossed in to a mix of red burgs, and it stood out as a new world pino with it's cleaner fruit and "modernity" (as G puts it, less VA?). I think it's all about the structure of the wine in comparison. Josh's was definitely lighter versus the d'Eugénie and Mugneret-Gibourg, the acid perceivably more prominent (almost steely), and minerality less so (if any at all). That's not to detract from Josh's really delicious creation, it's just different.
A light wine with heaps of flavour built around a red fruit core. Reflects the vineyard well I feel, having worked with the fruits from the Newnham family (same plot?) in 2017 and briefly in 2018 - small berries that produced lightly-coloured, aromatically charged wines with minimal tannins. This was in the same vein I feel, but Josh certainly pulled a lot more subtance out of these fruit than we did at KW. He's managed to weave in spicy, earthy, herbaceous nuances, and definitely extracted more colour. Mouthwatering acidity and commendable length. Probably the best Australian pino I've had all year (not like I had much to begin with)! — a year ago
