This is more like a bigger style of pinot noir from Morey Saint Denis. It is big but refined and seamless. The red berries note dominate throughout with support from fresh spices. Impressively long on the finish. Still rather young at the moment so let this baby sleeps until the end of this decade. Cheers!!!!!
