Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

Good dark red, a bit less bright and ruby than the En Famille and Coteaux Nobles bottlings. Complex aromas of crushed raspberry, cherry, mocha, underbrush, graphite and black tea, accented by a peppery element. Suave, broad and fine-grained, with a youthfully bitter edge to the intense flavors of red and darker berries and spices. Finishes quite dry in a positive way, with a firm spine for aging. Morlet noted that his 2011s are a half-degree lower in alcohol across the board than usual but this wine still weighs in at a very healthy 14.5%.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91+

From the highest elevation site, the 2011 Pinot Noir Joli Coeur is slightly more backward than its siblings. Revealing the darkest color along with good acidity, lots of minerality, and a dark berry, foresty and floral personality, it will benefit from another 6-12 months of bottle age, and should keep for 7-8 years.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
