This is one of those wines that hits the sweet spot. A deceptively classic Pinot Noir with a slight edge. These vines are 74 years old, all pommard clone, farmed biodynamically and certified organic. The fruit was gently hand sorted with no de-stemming allowing for a 100% whole cluster fermentation. After 16 months in barrel — half of which were one-time used French oak barrels — this wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. What ends up in the glass is a lush and silkened textured wine with cream filling, cold cherries complete with stems. We also note hints of strawberry rhubarb compote, wet stone, beeswax, fresh moss aromas, fresh lilac bunches, graphite and tar with structured tannins. Grab one for your immediate pleasure and a second to sit on.
