This vineyard is a neighbor of Domaine Drouhin, and its flavors suggest the same fragrant, almost delicate qualities. The vines are on their own rootstock, and the perfumed blue fruits carry whiffs of spice and confectionary candy. It's a very pretty Pinot, textural, supple and tart. The firm acids that carry through the finish promise a long life ahead.
