Medium to deep ruby-purple in color, the 2012 Pinot Noir opens to a lovely core of red and black cherry fruits accented with hints of violets, lavender, forest floor and mossy bark. Medium-bodied, it has a solid backbone of grainy tannins and lively acid supporting the muscular berry and earthy flavors. It finishes long and clean. 93/100
Ladoucette style, this wine is reminiscent of flinty, clean river stones. It has a fantastic elegance and is very feminine despite new oak, with good balance and clean acidity.
