2015 based Pinot Noir from Éceuil.
Golden, sunny and outgoing style rich with roasted pears, cooked lime and dried peach. There is some green spiciness, elderflower even, with a slightly vegetal tint. Chewy richness and walnut on the palate, although there is some succulence and freshness too – the oak is not swamping the fruit, but it is a good example of how 2015 posed some challenges for the Pinots. 16
