Surprisingly powerful with moderate tannins. Dark cherry fruit, rose petals and a hint of oak. Definitely a sign of the warmer vintage.

Notes of raspberries, wild flowers and spice. Given the youthfulness of this bottle, not surprised by the tart cherry/raspberry palate followed with minerality and slight toasted oak. Nice long finish.

Silky red fruit. Surprisingly ripe. Blind I would call Côte d'Or. Not the most complex, but just delicious.

Still catching up on notes from the Egly Ouriet night. This is the first straight non sparkling Pinot Noir I have had from Champagne. Cherries and Forest Floor on nose and palate. As good as a Premier Cru Burgundy in a warm year like 2015. Apparently two thirds of the crop was wasted in a green harvest leaving the remaining third to ripen. More acid than Burgundy. Only 200 cases made so quite rare. Delectable. This is the Ambonnay Rouge as per the label.
