Not my kind of pinot, but I must admit I quite enjoyed this. Kinda like Denis Mortet Mes Cinq Terriors. Dark fruited and mineral inflected. The Rossignol Trapet 13' village stretches quite a bit of power, but is well-balanced by the saline backbone and just the right amount of acidity. Blackcurrant, dried florals, earthy, mocha, some spice. Quite supple, silky tannins. I would say - excellent value! — 13 days ago
Tasted blind. Light tawny and translucent. Old wine nose. Notes of soft delicate red fruit, light rhubarb, some mushroom and some sweet cherries. In the mouth it’s missing impact and energy. Acidity is very light. Past it’s prime, although I wonder if this was open too long as the host said it was singing when opened, but then had 6 hrs in the decanter. Guessed mid 60s red burg. — 13 days ago
Beautiful red fruit aromatics. A little disappointed not as “sauvage” as some other vintages. In the mouth a great combo of juicy red and and black cherry flavors with some fleeting earth notes.
Wonderful integration but still not showing complexity. Started to shut down after an hour. The structure is there for it to age. — 19 days ago
