I find this to be a knockout for the price. Great purity, expressive nose, complex palate and plenty of charm for an easy drop. The tannins have a nice presence, adding definition. Ripe and juicy black raspberry and black cherry notes, kirsch, crushed earth, struck rocks, violets and cinnamon spices. It certainly has a volcanic tone to it. There’s and slight undertone of savoriness and sweet wood that highlight the wine. Very nicely done. 35 WC 20% N oak.

First wine from this producer and it did not disappoint! Lovely, earthy Pinot Noir of substance. Excited to visit in a few weeks!

Beautiful Pinot, there’s a tension in this bottle that’s terrific. Larry Stone and Dominique Lafon project.

There is really very little “Burgundian” about this despite the Francophile name and Dominique Lafon’s involvement. It’s a very nice middle of the road Oregon Pinot, showing plush red and blue fruit and some earth tones, restrained but with some flesh to it appropriate for the region and the vintage.

Wet earth baking spice with blackberry. Very good wine. Eucalyptus? Full flavor with a dense feel lingers

Sweet black berry jam on nose hints of acetone. Mid palate ok finish. Earthy flavors

Syrupy fruit. Really not to my liking when it comes to Pinot. It did improve much more on day 2. Perhaps a couple more years would have been beneficial, but in my experience that "syrupiness" never really totally resolves. Still, some really beautiful aromatics. Potential is there to be so much better.
