Pure and fruity aroma with the freshness of cranberry. A crisp and energetic spring on the attack. Talcy tannins mid palate. The oak is apparent in the hints of smoky tobacco and liquorice. Bitter cherry tanginess combines with higher toned, elegant florals and lower toned earthy notes. It’s bright and vivacious with a slightly strict and snappy austerity at the end. I was not so convinced that the Pinot showcases the clay in the way the Chardonnay does the chalk. It felt more like a wine from calcareous soil with its somewhat strict finish, straight palate and vibrancy, but over three days it settled nicely into its fresh and crunchy character.
