Domaine Saint Nicolas, Pinot Noir Fiefs Vendeéns Brem 2013

Jon-David Headrick Selections and European Cellars, Charlotte NC.

PN from a terroir of pink slate.  Organic-BIO.

Five years on.

Crimson.  Pungent terroir gets your attention and the ripe nourishing mid-palate keeps it.  Tannins are thickly textured but rounded, like deep-pile fabric.  It has the transparency of natural winemaking without coming off volatile or quirky.  Oleander and beetroot and the finish is explicit.  Now – 2020+.
