Aromatic and juicy but masculine rather than elegant pinot noir from Burgundy. It is singing harmoniously but I assume that it needs some air before showing its full potential at this stage. As I was sipping, it kept getting better over time. At start I did not like it so much with acidity dominant but it revealed more complexity and got softer as time pass by. Suppose that it should show well from now. A decent bottle definitely.
