Wine EnthusiastThis fruity wine features strawberry and bitter cherry flavors. A lightly tannic structure accompanies a very fragrant and smoky character. Wood shows through at the end. Drink from 2015.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Bourgogne Pinot Noir La Reserve is the cuvee reserved for North America. It sees some barrel ageing and includes 7-8% new oak. One-third of the 2012 comes from the Hautes Cotes de Beaune and Hautes Cotes de Nuits, supplemented with declassified village crus. It has a rustic bouquet with dark plum and blackberry fruit - clean and simple. The palate is medium-bodied with light tart cherry fruit and a slightly "mealy" finish that is short and tapered. Easy-drinking Pinot Noir.

Neal Martin, February 2014
