Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir 'La Bauge' 2013
A super Pinot from one of California's best wineries. The nose is perfect Pinot - strawberries and spice/pepper and cherries etc. The palate is round and long, positively stuffed with red fruits such as strawberries (again), redcurrants, raspberries and cherries. The spicy, peppery angle simply adds to the general delights experienced on every sip. Deeply complex and satisfying. We like this a lot - there almost a scuffle when the remains of our sample bottle were up for grabs. Oh, and did we mention the strawberries?
