It displays gentle garnet colour with a touch of ruby. On the nose it shows medium intense classic Pinot Noir character with plenty of strawberries, red berry fruits and a gentle layer of smoke are interlaced with notes of undergrowth, earth, mushrooms. Persistent and compact, showing more and more complexity with time. Dry on the palate, medium to full bodied with lovely freshness usually expected in great Pinot Noirs. With quite firm tannic grip. Fully mature in great condition and long aftertaste.
Veal, roast chicken, rabbit, grilled tuna, also beef and dishes with mushroom sauces.
2013 vintage started late with almost optimal June and July and some of the highest temperatures in history in early August. September was rather cool and wet resulting in a white wine vintage with fresh acidities, moderate alcohol levels and lovely aromatic profiles. A classic vintage.
2 weeks of maceration, 24 months in new and used, barriques, unfiltered.
Already accessible but will improve. Drink from 2020-2030.
