N°22 Pinot Noir Reviews

Score: 95+ | March 1, 2017 | Wine Advocate

Pale ruby colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir No. 22 offers a gorgeous perfume of red roses and violets over a core of wild strawberries, raspberries and Provence herbs with a touch of underbrush. The medium-bodied palate delivers a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berry flavors framed by very fine tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with great depth and persistence.

The 2013 Pinot Noir No. 22 is a dead ringer for a grand cru Burgundy from the Côte de Nuits. Notes of forest floor, autumnal vegetation, spice box, blackcurrants and black cherries all drift up from the complex aromatics of this Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Believe it or not, there is something almost DRC-like in the aromatics of this wine, which makes me wonder what the clonal material was that Boisset was using, and what the source was for this wine. This is a stunner.
