Vincent Girardin Pinot Noir Emotion de Terroirs 2009

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Lush, dark black cherry on the nose along with licorice, crushed red berries, light cedar and a graphite minerality. Tart cherry up front with substantial acid. A loamy, chalky note throughout, it displays a somewhat underbrush-laced array of cherries and hints of lavender. Powerful frame and dark fruit. Dry finish, but the acidity keeps the mouth watering. Nice but needs food. 87 pts. 3/12/13

Success in winemaking requires a rigour and attention to detail at all times for each individual wine. Because each wine has its own specific characteristics, the right technical decisions by the winemaker are essential. Read less
