From: Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Upon release. Big, round and attractive red fruit nose. Round, comforting texture, there’s some tannin but it’s modest. Lovely red fruit flavours of quite good complexity. This is extremely drinkable – yum!
Now, 2021. As expected, time has been a wonderful friend to this wine. Those modest tannins and round flavors which were apparent upon release have melded together in an extremely harmonious way. Those tannins have turned to velvet on the palate, its finish lilting and elevating. Fruit still present and charming on the nose, but it's graced with other more mature aromas of clove, mushroom, tobacco flower, all adorning a red fruit bouquet like perfume with an unmistakable undercurrent of forest floor. Don't be fooled by those silky smooth tannins, this wine is enchanting and deserves a moment of quiet appreciation to enjoy its nuance.
Pairing: It's hard for me to really get into pairings with this wine, because it's extremely versatile with food, but so lovely in the glass that it'll make you nostalgic while you're enjoying this. If you really want to do this right, go to Le Caviste, Le Pichet, or Café Campagne in Seattle and do it up in style (Le Caviste might have this on the menu so if you go there, buy the bottle there and order all the charcuterie boards & seasonal fare). Don't want to leave Greenwood? Go to Gainsbourg or Flint Creek & indulge in all the seasonal mushrooms you can order.
Christine on 2014:
“In 2014 we had a little more wine. Harvested mid-September. The season was more stressy and of course there was the hail at the end of June – because of that, it was less than a full harvest. We saw some drosophila in Pernand – I was worried at start, but luckily we’ve found nothing volatile in the wines. I find a nice balance in the whites – they have a combination of richness and minerality. For the reds We are happy, nothing hard here.”
