Heady perfume highlights this graceful, Beaune-style Pinot. Floral red cherry fruit with sweet spices as well as hints of tobacco, coffee, and charcoal in the core. Slight green herbal edge. Light and feminine in feel in the mouth and finish. Slight dustiness in the finish. Reminds me of a really good Mercurey or Givry from France. - HK 2012-03-21
