Jean-François Clouet’s zero-dosage ideal is manifested with superb clarity, showcasing pinot noir of such depth and richness that it has absolutely no need for dosage.
The great 2012 season brings tension and precision, still upholding a taut acid line and primary freshness of lemon and white cherry fruit. Barrel fermentation unites with bottle age to lay out a magnificently complex landscape of gingernut biscuits, hazelnuts, fruit mince spice, coffee and praline.
Pronounced chalk mineral acidity provides sea salt definition, with a creamy, frothy texture which contrasts notes of fine but firm dry extract heightened in barrels. A zero dosage of persistence, tension and confidence. Tyson Stelzer
