Delicate and soft; light and unassuming. This northern Cote de Beaune wine is enjoyable but considerably less captivating than that of the villages to the north. Perhaps a nice alternative to American west coast Pinot, if that is what normally fills your glass. Tasted Dec 2011.

Opened April 2011.
Restrained bouquet of pencil shavings and herbacous greens. Not what I expect from Pinot Noir. Palate carries same flavours and the green fruit characters, which I associate with under ripe grapes, is dominate.
On a positive note it does have a long palate.
