  • "Pinot Noir 2010, 5/X"  88p Clean nose, ripe, partly preserved black berries, some raspberries and cherries, touch of dried herbs, some tobacco, integrated oak and prominent mineral notes. Full-bodied and juicy on the palate, ripe, creamy, partly preserved and candied fruit, some oak and chocolate, delicate acid bite, very ripe, silky tannins, persistent, appealing style, already deceptively approachable, although the wine does not yet reveal its full potential, firm core, has some depth, very good finish.
