Score: 85-88 | February 1, 2011 | Burghound
An exuberantly fruity and mildly exotic nose leads to delicious and easy-to-like middle weight flavors that exhibit a light touch of minerality on the sappy and citrusy finish. This is refreshing as there is good vivacity if limited complexity. (85-88)/now

Deep violet color. Sexy aromas of blackberry liqueur, cherry compote, potpourri and a hint of white pepper. Offers sweet, open-knit dark fruit flavors and a velvety texture, enhanced by slow-building smokiness and a touch of bitter cherry. Gentle tannins add focus to the juicy, appealingly sweet finish. This wine will be drinkable on release.

(a monople of the domaine) An intensely earthy nose features a pretty mix of red currant and dark pinot fruit aromas where the earth component transfers over to the rich, intense and mildly rustic middle weight flavors that possess fine volume and a round mouth feel as there is ample sap on the solidly persistent finish. 2015+

...there is good vitality and freshness to the round, rich, supple and focused middle weight flavors that poses good focus and firm structure but there is plenty of buffering sap and excellent length. This offers find development potential and is worth considering. 2016+

A very fresh and very pinot rose speaks of exuberant red berries and kirsch aromas that complement the overtly fruity and delicious flavors that are round, soft and almost easy, all wrapped in a nicely precise finish that is persistent but of limited complexity. In the sum, this is pretty rather than profound and to drink for its fruit. 2012+

Drink 2017-2024 Very slightly cheesy on the nose. Then very sweet. Lots of fine tannin. Masses of fruit. Positively voluptuous.

Drink 2016-2024 Decent lift and raciness. This seems much the best so far from this address. Quite nervy and exciting.
