Clear color; super-fragrant cherry, plum and spice aromas all seek to dominate the bouquet, but none succeed, with a hint of oak in the background. The palate has exceptional texture and length, 30% whole bunch, 30% new oak.

A plush Pinot Noir from the 2012 vintage, this has plenty of satsuma plum and dark cherry fruits as well as bright redder cherries, dark spices and freshly toasted oak. The palate has supple and fleshy fruit flavours, cherries and summer berries, fine tannins fan out superbly, a touch of liquorice to close – full of pleasure.
