    Love it! I often find that the best wines need a little time to open up. Like some people….

    Thanks Toni, great tip. Lunch- just entered my note on this one, opened yesterday (needs a little time to open up). I share my tasting note “10/2/2017- (def serve lightly chilled 12-14c). now it has opened up it is quite delightful, balanced, perfumed, gentle. Light but with moderate length to palate. Nothing not to like about it, simply does not know the meaning of ‘wine-making-fault’. Astonishing for $17. Prob the best value/$ pinot I have ever had retail. There must be a danger of mass suicides in Burgundy.”
