Domaine Dublère, Volnay Les Pitures 1er Cru 2007

Blicker Pierce Wagner Wine Merchants, St. Helena CA.

Ten years on.

Bright ruby.  I associate Pitures with stones but this one from Blair Pethel is more about the roots.  Pleasing corners, no sharp angles and a rich sassafrassy garrigue.  Crystalline textures with finishing grip; a Côte de Beaune soul with an American heart.  Now – 2020.
