(aged in 20% used barriques): Bright red. Captivating aromas of ripe red cherry and strawberry. Rich and dense but with rather austere red fruit flavors lifted by a pretty floral nuance at the back. This is rich without being weighty and offers compelling sweetness and spiciness. From 40-year-old vines (an Alsatian massale selection) that produced only 30 hectoliters per hectare in 2011. Here's another example of a pinot noir that benefited from the warmer 2011 vintage.
