From an exceedingly satisfying vintage, a pinot that offers immediate contentment upon tasting. Aligning a multitude of flowers, early season plums and pomegrante with a fluid texture on the palate. Acidity is nonaggressive, owing to the vintages voluptuousness. An ideal wine for snacking with friends over terrines and fresh chèvre. Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and light red hue. Elevated black cherry aromas mix with dried herbs, earthy leather like notes and spiced dried meats. Light earthy dark cherry flavours are interwoven with smoked meats, leather and spice. Dryish finish with sturdy tannins and a very earthy leather dominate aftertaste.

Working through the Domaine Chevrot trio on my bench today was a bit of a wild ride but interesting and I liked it. Not really a coherent message from the producer, but that’s not what I look for always, and indeed, the wines each spoke with their own worthy personality, and boldly. Organic farming, natural winemaking, additions low or zero. Rustic charm meets pop of fruit. Bright acidity keeps the wine at a brisk gait, there’s a splash of jubey, pretty fruit, some charcuterie characters tossed in, green herb things and a strong sense of general ‘minerality’ coursing through this wine. This feels very ‘of grape’ rather than anything else, has superb, gummy tannins that feel fine and building while flavours bring up the word ‘detailed’ in my notes. It’s sort of awkward in a way and not elegant, but it’s proud of its slight oddity and I like it. I would like to sit down and take some time drinking this bottle. By myself
