2008 Section 94

This is bright with pale straw colour; on the nose it has interesting and intense wild yeast and the palate has mineral citrus and yeasty oak flavours with some underlying ripe gooseberry.

2008 Pinot Noir

The 2008 Pinot Noir is matured in Francois Frere barriques, 50% new, for 18 months and bottled without fining or filtering. Medium-deep ruby colored, the nose is very fragrant, floral, with notes of violets and lavender over red cherry and crushed raspberry plus nuances of cedar, thyme, loam and moss. Crisp, medium bodied with a medium level of ine grained tannins, it has a long earthy finish. Approachable now, it should cellar to 2016+. 90/100
