1997 Pinot Noir

Tasting Date: 24 February 2006

Tasted at the winery with the sommelier and owners of Tantris, a 2 star Michelin Restaurant in Munich.

This one was a good cork, and showed the huge difference a cork and cellaring can make. The wine was fresh, lively, but fully mature. I hate saying very Burgundian, but as the wines mature that is the only reference that really works, this was like tasting a good Volnay or Chambolle, from 95 or 97. One can see the start of a fruit decline, but it is still full and certainly not tasting over the hill. The wine is definitely fully mature and will decline from this point, unless you are a real decay lover, drink now. 

After a lot of thought we have decided not to use Facebook or Twitter. We like longer conversations and for them to be personal not public. If we did it, it would be because it is a fashion and not because our heart is in it and that doesn’t feel right. So please email, or much better come and see us.
