In the glass, this French Pinot shows a ruby red center with bricking edges and a WIDE garnet halo….
A sniff is full of funk, shiitake mushrooms and cow-pasture and I’M GUSHING ————-> A revisit shows some hidden cranberries and perfumed black fruit…..
The palate starts with cranberry sauce and more of the earthiness I got on the nose before tumbling into a fun and lively basket overflowing with bright bing cherries…. A chew and a swish show some super sharp tannins that bring out ripe blackberry and tobacco notes before a looooooooong, silky, dried berry finish….
Guys, this one from Louis Latour is a CLASSIC expression of old world Pinot…. With almost a decades worth of age, this thing couldn’t be any more fresh and youthful in the glass ————> This bottle of wine should be a pre-req for ALL aspiring cellars!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with a lively classic like Creedence Clearwater Revival – Bad Moon Rising
