This is the flagship wine from a famed Burgundy producer’s Dundee HIlls estate, named for winemaker Veronique Boss-Drouhin's eldest daughter. Blended from the barrels which have a little extra complexity and depth – like any good mother/daughter relationship – this wine is full of charm and character with its deft balance of vibrancy and restraint. Intensely woven sweet cherry, pomegranate, wild herbs and baking spices will continue to evolve beautifully through the end of the decade, but there’s no reason to delay your gratification another second.
Shimmering ruby-red. High-pitched red fruit, floral and exotic spice aromas are complemented by suave incense and vanilla flourishes. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry, boysenberry, cherry preserve and spicecake flavors that convey a deft blend of power and delicacy. Finishes extremely long and precise, with resonating floral character and well-judged, polished tannins that sneak in late.
A selection of around 100 barrels from the Dundee Hills estate pinot, this has a deeply grounded and confidently defined feel on the palate with density of tannin and a strong, noble core that carries long and builds so convincingly. Long, sustained, seamless quality to the finish. Drink over the next decade.
