AG 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - A deeply scented, perfumed wine, the 2011 Pinot Noir impresses for its nuanced personality and sheer detail. Dark cherry notes lead to plums, cloves, menthol and crushed rocks. The 2011 is all about delineation, nuance and freshness, all qualities that are very much present in the glass. This is a terrific first effort from Champs de Rêves. These vines were only planted in 2006. It will be fascinating to see what develops here in the coming years.
Tasting Notes - Bright, fresh blueberry, cranberry and rose petal aromas underscored by subtle nuances of anise, toffee, white truffle and wet sand. Flavors of juicy huckleberry, hibiscus and tobacco emerge on the palate. Lively acidity, granite-like minerality and solid tannic backbone – all a testament to high-altitude winegrowing.
