Beautiful Pinot, there’s a tension in this bottle that’s terrific. Larry Stone and Dominique Lafon project.

There is really very little “Burgundian” about this despite the Francophile name and Dominique Lafon’s involvement. It’s a very nice middle of the road Oregon Pinot, showing plush red and blue fruit and some earth tones, restrained but with some flesh to it appropriate for the region and the vintage.

Syrupy fruit. Really not to my liking when it comes to Pinot. It did improve much more on day 2. Perhaps a couple more years would have been beneficial, but in my experience that "syrupiness" never really totally resolves. Still, some really beautiful aromatics. Potential is there to be so much better.

Definitely some funk but still relatively easy drinking. I actually seem like this Oregon pinot....
