Alcohol by volume: 14.6%

A super buy in high-quality Pinot Noir every year. The 2018 has more meat on its bones than the more austere 2017, though both are excellent. The 2018 is highlighted by dark cherry, plum, sage, smoke Asian spice. Medium-bodied and satisfying in the mouth. Maybe not as long and complex as the single-vineyard Capiaux Pinot's, but a no-brainer to purchase if you can find it. - HK 2021-07-01
