Silex Sancerre Pinot Noir 2016

Domaine Delaporte - Silex - pinot noir 2016

Nose of barnyard at first and a bright ripe cherry. Some graphite or pencil lead too. The barnyard is disturbing at first and it needs a quite some time to get away. The palate is yummy with lots of ripe cherry all.around the acid backbone. A strong grip on the sides and a bit of tannins in the end. The finish is yummy too with cherry again and a bit of salt/meat. Very nice all round wine as always with this producer.

Great intensity but tight and not giving much at the moment. Focused, lemony, mineral, steel. Structured and incredibly concentrated on the palate. Tremendous balance and energy. Hold and wait in excitement! — 7 days ago
