93-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2011

($347; two-thirds new oak; has the highest pH of these 2009s, at 3.7) Red-ruby. Knockout multidimensional nose combines red berries, licorice, orange peel and pungent smoky minerality. Dense, sappy, sweet and very young; much more about soil than pinot noir fruit. Offers intriguing saline and orange peel notes, plus a licorice quality that Hervet says comes from soil rich in silica (like Vosne-Romanee Les Reignots). Wonderfully tactile finish offers outstanding lift and some sweet new oak. This got better and better in the glass.
