Intense, cool-climate, lean Pinot. Needs food to soften the austerity. Superb.

Not a Champagne but a still wine of Pinot. Just amazing hint cranberry and AMAZING minerality. Drink now, and enjoy the hell out of it!

Perhaps one notch more intellectually enjoyable than actually enjoyable, but good to try. A well aged Pinot noir from Champagne, specially from Bouzy. Has very little fruit - the mineral and acid notes dominate here. Not necessarily in a bad way, but this needs some food for sure or the iron-y taste can be a bit much. Very long finish, helped for sure by the acid. Interesting...but for the price I’d probably stick with Burgundy.
