100% Pinot Noir from a center slope parcel ‘La Montaloise’ in Parassy, planted in clay limestone in 1979.
Ten years on.
Mature ruby. He’s pastoral, cyanic and blatantly mineral. Metal, autumn leaf and cherry pit with a brassica undertow. Zippy and energetic. The finish is like noodling on a swiss chard stem with your teeth. Unadorned Menetou-Salon, for the Lorax among us. Now.
