Ever wonder why this is consistently balanced, juicy and fresh? It is the 7 percent gamay? The result is an earthy, savoury style of pinot with underbrush and ripe red fruits framed by some nicely integrated oak spice. The attack is supple, the fruit juicy with rhubarb, barnyard cherry undertones, and smooth tannins. One of the best regular bottlings in the valley. The pinot work includes a five-day cold soak, and a ferment for several weeks using wild and cultivated yeasts before ten months ageing in French oak barriques. Score - 89.
