An exceptional red wine that exemplifies the elegance and finesse of the Pinot Noir grape. Hailing from select vineyards known for producing top-quality Pinot Noir grapes, and it embodies the unique characteristics of the region it represents.
In the glass, a beautiful translucent ruby color, inviting the senses with its alluring appearance. The aromatics are captivating, offering a delicate yet complex bouquet. Notes of ripe red berries, such as cherries and raspberries, dance alongside hints of black currants and violets. A subtle touch of earthiness and forest floor adds depth and intrigue to the aromatic profile, creating an enchanting olfactory experience.
On the palate, it has a refined nature and graceful structure. It glides across the tongue with a silky and velvety texture, caressing the palate with every sip. The flavors mirror the aromas, with luscious red fruit taking the forefront. Ripe cherries, cranberries, and wild strawberries burst with juiciness, while a gentle spiciness adds complexity and depth. The wine's well-integrated tannins provide a supple framework, contributing to a smooth and harmonious mouthfeel. A subtle touch of oak imparts a whisper of vanilla and a delicate toasty note, enhancing the overall complexity.
The grapes are handpicked at the peak of ripeness to ensure optimal flavor development. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels, allowing the flavors to evolve and harmonize gracefully over time.
A versatile wine with medium body and balanced acidity. The perfect match for roasted poultry, such as duck or chicken, as well as grilled salmon or mushroom-based dishes.
93pts Wine Spectator "Intensely plush and fruity, with dark cherry, plum pastry and toasty flavors that are well-structured. Creamy in the midpalate, with a finish that's loaded with chocolatey richness and spiciness. Drink Now."
90pts Wine Enthusiast "This bold wine offers plenty of black plum and black cherry, wrapped in moderate tannins on a very full body. Bold ripeness and a broad texture give it a generous, mouthfilling effect."
