Australia's biggest wine critic, James Halliday, gave it 94 points. Huon Hooke gave it 96.
With fruit taken from acclaimed Caneros and Monterey County, it's all about juicy red fruit (think cranberries, cherries, and raspberries), and delicate hints of cedar, smoke, and bay leaf.
From grapes sourced across the Burgundy region, primarily from old Cote d'Or vines. Maison Nicolas Potel is a respected name in Burgundy. Perfect with chicken and tangy cheeses.
Rich garnet core with a purplish rim. Aromas of ripe black cherries and currants, with a lifted raspberry note and a hint of vanilla. Fine tannins, medium palate weight, and good fruit concentration.
This Pinot Noir is made from 45-year-old vines in Santenay, the village in which the founder of the winery, Vincent Girardin, was born.
Made with only the ripest grapes (some from Languedoc to add juicy complexity) this Pinot Noir echoes Loire's finest appellations with an approachable, fruit-driven style.
