This jury was able to bring in an unanimous verdict, finding this wine guilty of being a seriously elegant wine - Class in a Glass if you like; it’s always a good sign when you are in no hurry to swallow a wine; this a wine worth giving a leisurely tour of your tastebuds; it’s by no means a blockbuster but it proves that big is not always best; the neighbors thought it reminded them of a Chateau de Mersault Pinot villages from Beaune; I can’t vouch for a big call like that myself but comparing this wine to that of one of the biggest and best Beaune winemakers is high praise indeed; Di and red wine don’t normally agree with each other but this one was a wine she came back for more of; we did and I’m sure you will too.
P.S.This wine may well develop its savoury characters with a few years in the cellar but why wait- it’s drinking beautifully now. James Halliday is in our view a little stingey giving this wine only 93 points; on our assessment we think it’s a 95.
