(2021) A blend of four Pinot Noir clones, 31% Dijon 667, 29% Pommard, 20% Dijon 115, and 20% Swan, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel followed by ageing in French oak, 46% new barrels. A rich and fulsome Pinot, 14.5% alcohol and ripe, but not without finesse and a certain elegance. The nose has graphite and some herb and briarwood notes, but there is refined black fruit too, plenty of it, compote and a hint of cherry to give some freshness. In the mouth that balance of substance - fruit extract, tannin and cherry-pit acidity - but a savoury, quite agile quality too. Long, fresh and focused on fruit and acidity in the finish.
