Press & Reviews
(100% pinot noir from Verzenay, all from 2009; disgorged in January, 2013): Light yellow. Fresh flowers, nectarine, strawberry and pear skin on the mineral- and spice-accented nose. Gently sweet, fleshy and seamless, offering ripe pear and pit fruit flavors and a touch of chamomile. Finishes with firm grip and cut and strong spicy persistence.
The NV Blanc de Noirs Fins Lieux #3, 100% Mailly Pinot Noir from the 2011 vintage, is a solid wine for the year. Hazelnut, dried pear, savory herb and floral overtones suggest the 2011 is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Today, the 2011 is both powerful and a touch austere.Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged: June 2017.
