Full, bright aromatics and flavors but light in color, body and oak so subtract 5 points from the typical upcoming American critical reviews. Lovely now to 20 years.

Very good expression of pinot. Light, red bright fruit aroma. Good acidity and minerality. Can age.

Starts off light but opens up nicely if you give it some time. Earthy and very exotic spices.

Deep funk, seemingly not microbially derived. Bloody, red, roses, dirt, firm. Much like an 09 Pommard with a lot of stems, a la Gaunoux.
