Tasting Notes

This is the entry level wine, but it’s dizzyingly complex. This wine is not “about” fruit, though there is a characteristic pinot flavor present and an evenness, a steady handedness here. It’s bright and has a directness, a drive that’s full of energy while the underlying soil specific, almost flinty flavor of Verzy is on full display, carrying into the long finish.
