Decanted ~5hrs.

Deep purple color with a nice ruby edge.

Nose is reminiscent of Passe-Tout-Grains whereas the Gamay adds a little of acidity to the mix. Very bright/aromatic fresh cherry, touch of alcohol (13% ABV), over-ripe strawberry and mashed green herbs.

Palate has tannic red cherry fruit, leather, flat cherry cola, herbal-mineral traits and medium finish.

This wine is from Moselle in the Lorraine region of France, tight against Germany in the northeast corner of the Country. Directly parallel and 175km drive West from Baden, Germany, whereas I believe, there are also a few winemakers doing extraordinary things with Pinot Noir, take notice. Only a total of 0.006 hectares on this plot, a very nice effort here.

Paired with duck confit, shredded atop green lentils with just a splash of cider vinegar to brighten, all great.

@Delectable Wine This is a VDF from the Moselle in France. Winemaker is Remi Gauthier. This is 100% Pinot Noir. Slamming nose. Cherry cola, big big cherries, licorice, mineral and even ripe strawberry. Super aromatic and wonderful. Unique as well. So juicy and ripen with ample lip smacking mid season cherry fruit and wonderful acidity and freshness. Terrific purity and freshness. Impressive length and so so well made.

when you open this it’s deceptively gluggable. Tastes like cru Beaujolais a bit. After a half an hour the complexity shows. Purplish fruit. Some licorice. Great texture. Finish is really grippy. Lingers on the palate. The fruit is really sweet and delicious to the max. With this decent complexity a total winner. A party of 5 could easily polish off a case of this over a very happy evening. Bought from fass selections. ... there is some spritz in this that blows off after an hour. Nose is floral. Violets?
