Somber, almost backward pinot fruit with tight, edgy, firm flavors that offer acceptable length and not much personality. It remains remarkably fresh for a 10 year old villages level wine and surprisingly, this still need 5+ years to really soften the firm but not hard structure and to hopefully become more expressive.

Amazing for a village wine. Unbelievable. Essence of wild raspberries added to a hint of earth. Full in body and lots of tannins, which the ripe fruit seems to soften somewhat.
