Bright red. Vibrant aromas of redcurrant, flint and stony minerality. Silky, sweet and seamless, but with harmonious acidity and chalky minerality energizing the middle palate. Really spreads out and lingers on the aftertaste but the chalky tannins will require at least a few years of patience.
An ultra-refined, pure and cool nose features essence of red pinot fruit along with floral and stone nuances where the latter elements also add depth to the racy and intense middle weight flavors. Like the nose there is the same sense of crystalline purity on the palate that continues onto the vibrant, stony and hugely persistent finish. This understated and Zen-like effort just oozes class.
