Firm ruby color, the nose expresses the soil. Here the flinty clay is shown in hints of smoked food and cherries in kirsch, all blended in extremely silky tannins.
Pairs well with poached eggs with a wine sauce, spicy wild duck, pears in cinnamon.
2012 La Demoiselle is a pure and fresh Pinot Noir from a small plot on flinty clay soils. Red currant, cassis and dark cherry flavors are mixed with fresh raspberry, lime/grapefruit and floral aromas, cayenne pepper and darkly toasted cacao and coffee beans. This powerful, elegant, silky textured and full-bodied red is ripe, sweet and fruit intense, but also refined, fresh and structured by firm, still young tannins and a delicate acidity. It finishes persistently with an animating purity and remarkable finesse and nutty aromas. I would store it for another 3 or 4 years before I start drinking it.
