Top Premium Pinot Noir tasted 11/13

1. Champ de Reves Pinot Noir (2010)

Next » 1 of 8
Average price: $37.99 from 12 stores
Rather seductively perfumed on the nose with lots of underbrush, root beer candy and coriander accents to the core of deep raspberry coulis fruit all topped with a fresh vegetal note that recalls fennel. Rich and chewy in the mouth and endowed with powerful, dark fruit, though this remains transparent on the palate. there are really beautiful faceted black fruit flavors on the palate cut by decisive mineral notes and all layered over well judged wood. It’s got a super blend of savory and fruity going on right through the long finish which retains enough tannin to make this very food friendly. Muscular yet elegant, this could still improve in the cellar for another 3-5 years. 92pts
