Pinot Noir

Akitu A2 Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago, New Zealand
£ 36.00
Bunches of bright red fruits, rose petal and just a hint of cinnamon carry through from the nose to the palate. The exceedingly bright, fresh flavours balance with a depth of flavour and a supple, silky tannin structure. This would be absolutely perfect to drink right away but will also be rewarded by a further one to three years of cellaring, to develop slightly more nuanced flavours.
Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir 2020, Santa Maria Valley, California
£ 32.85
Fresh red morello cherries dominate the nose, supported by strawberries and a lift of musky perfume. The wine is generous and ripe, with an enticing clove-and-cinnamon spice character; it feels relaxed and gentle. Fine tannins leave a very slight grip on the long, pure and refreshing finish.

Delicious pure forest berry and plum fruit with notes of red cherry. Succulent and juicy
Fixin 2015, Louis Boillot
£ 34.95
It has a slightly earthy nose, sultry when tasted from barrel, with raspberry preserve and subtle iodine scents, almost like a Marsannay. The palate is medium bodied with crunchy blackberry and blackcurrant notes, sprinkled with black pepper and a touch of graphite towards the edgy finish. I appreciate the energy conveyed here, although the edges need to be smoothed down.
Gevrey Chambertin 2020, Chateau de Marsannay
£ 68.45
Exquisitely pretty Marsannay. Not particularly complex, but that is not the point of this wine, it’s all about pure, unadulterated pleasure. An open, generous array of fruit flavours of damsons and cherries with a floral violet perfume. Soft, generous, and velvety. 30% whole bunch fermentation.
Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru Champonnets 2016, Domaine Heresztyn Mazzini
£ 90.00
There is more whole bunch (70%) in the 2016 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru les Champonnets, the highest used by the domaine in this growing season. Now this has a very mineral-driven bouquet, terse and linear at first, though the fruit soon comes to the surface—blackberries, briary and a hint of cassis. This is very seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, weight and persistence.

Bright ruby red, with upfront aromas of freshly picked raspberries and an underlying savoury leesiness. Fleshy red fruits continue to the palate and are joined by fine tannins and juicy acidity.
