Pinot Noir 'La Cote', Domaine de la Cote

The Domaine’s eponymous vineyard offers the prettiest and most ethereal wine of the vintage. Do not, however, mistake its gracefulness as an invitation for early drinking. Along with its upslope neighbor, Siren’s Call, the 2016 la Côte may well be the vintage’s longest-lived wine. Upon release the nose yields sour cherry, black tea, sous bois, and citrus rind, all dancing in the glass and on a highly intricate palate. The finish is uniquely long and contemplative, confirming the wine need not be revisited for another 6-8 years.Field is the most immediate and generous wine of the vintage upon release.
