Older vines added to the heavier berry weight and deeper cherry in a vintage even one year younger than the younger vines. Crazy side by side comparison vs the 2017 younger vine. Softer berries, fuller, better integrated mouth with more approachable acid.

Musty cherry, would age beautifully to show the best expression. Cloudy but clears visually. Cranberry and understated spice.

I love the White from Domaine Nicolas so needed to try the Red. I always have to preface that I’m not a huge fan of Pinot Noir. Decanted 30+ minutes. Bright red color with high clarity. Green nose with strawberries. Pepper and tartness throughout with modest sweetness at the end. Lacked concentration and depth. Probably drank too young, but was just “okay”.
