Wife’s birthday wine. Always supremely special, even under difficult vintage circumstances.

Cloudy, fizzy a bit funky. With air cleans up a bit.

Gorgeous pure raspberry and red currant fruit, elevated aromatics with a hint of spice and barnyard. Impressive

Under-ripe fruit, nice acidity, a little iodine/salinity combo. Can’t think of a better Thanksgiving Dinner wine.

A touch volatile, which is to be expected in riper vintages like 2009 and 2015 from Producers who use less/minimal SO2. Rich, dense fruit, large scale and heavier than I prefer, and surely showing alcohol. A crowd pleasing vintage, but, again, lacking the freshness and cut I prefer.

Love the 2015s. Big, dense and expressive still with classic Dutraive elegance and finesse
