This is Mon Cheval’s upper tier Pinot Noir only produced in top vintages. Dark, deep and complex, the broad bouquet shows savoury dark berry, cured meat, mushroom and forest floor. A touch of aniseed and floral perfumes also come through, possibly from the use of whole bunch stalks. The wine has an abundance of ripe berry and plum fruit flavours, mushroom and dried herbs, with an instantly appealing savoury complexity and lingering finish.

"No mistaking the purity, power and elegance of this Pinot with oak leading the package of aromas. Forrest berries, brown spices abundant in vanilla and clove scents. Dry, spiced, chalky, fine tannins, silky textures and a core of red berry fruits. Earthy and sophisticated, lengthy and packed with Pinosity.” – Cameron Douglas MS
