Tasting Notes

This is the Blanc de Noirs from the 2012 vintage; all Pinot Noir, all in barrels. En tirage for 60 months. The aroma is pure Montagne Pinot! It’s an exhale of red fruit and earth. This is zero dosage and works well in this mode – there is enough gras to carry the fruit through the finish. There is a complex mid palette here, intertwining a woods-y, smoke-y character with a bright bend of fruit giving structure and harmony to the wine.
