Surprisingly impressive Pinot Noir for the price - and there aren't many Pinot Noirs in that category any more. Deep strawberry in color and quite French-like, similar to a village wine from the Chalonnaise like Givry or Mercurey. Good varietal cherry/strawberry fruit with floral notes, light but elegant feel in the mouth, slightly bitter hollowness in the midrange. Certainly a wine to drink now, and a bargain. - HK 2008-12-30
