This Pinot Noir was made by Francois Millet, winemaker at the iconic Chambolle Musigny estate of Domaine Georges Comte de Vogue in partnership with Paul Pujol from Prophets Rock. Francois even insisted on exporting the same brass hand pumps from Bugundy to ensure that the wine was made using the same tools as he would in Burgundy. 100% destemmed from one parcel of the home block. Vinified in tank with one plunge by hand. Aged in 33% new oak for 17 months. "The bouquet is fresh and vibrant and loaded with dark fruit aromas, cherry uppermost, spices and dried herbs touches." - Huon Hooke

Huon Hooke

“Deep red colour with a strong purple tint. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant and loaded with dark fruit aromas, cherry uppermost, spices and dried herbs touches. Oak is apparent early but recedes into balance with exposure to the air. The palate opens with powerful flavour and marked acidity. A concentrated, powerful and beautifully poised wine with energy and vitality, intensity and complexity, great pinosity and drive, with ample tannins backing the flavour but not tough or aggressive as Bendigo tannins can be. The aftertaste is very persistent and harmonious. This is a great wine. I would place it alongside any Burgundy Grand Cru. Very, very impressive”

Wow, what a wine. Heady aromatics and very floral with wafts of raspberries and red cherries alongside a savoury note with an intriguing gravelly/crushed rock character. It has restrained power yet focus and definition. It’s minerally and long with fresh acidity and beautiful tannin structure. Quite beguiling. - 2016 vintage

This is a collaborative project wine between Paul Pujol and Burgundian winemaker, François Millet. There’s a very attractive, fresh array of wild flowers, light herbs and pristine red-cherry and plum aromas. The palate has a seamless build of ripe-cherry flavor and fine, long tannins. Superb. Drink or hold - 2016 Vintage
