This is actually aromatically similar to the Framboisière with just a touch more elegance. By contrast there is more volume and power to the rich and well-detailed medium weight flavors that offer both more depth and persistence on the somewhat more structured finale. This mineral and earth-inflected effort also offers very fine quality and is worth considering.

About is the result of a nearly lifelong passion for the wines of Burgundy. For more than 30 years, I have been collecting the wines and visiting the region. Each year I spend nearly five months visiting, researching, tasting, exploring and evaluating. Burgundy is my obsession really. Expanding on my coverage of the coveted pinot noir grape, each issue provides continuous coverage of both Oregon and California pinot noir, with rotating coverage of Champagne and occasional special reports from other pinot producing regions.
