Luminous pale medium red. Musky ripe red cherry, fresh herbs, brown spices and mint on the nose and palate. Then sweeter and larger-scale but more backward today than Grosjean’s classic Pinot Noir bottling, and showing a medicinal austerity along with its sweet, fleshy ripe fruit. A very big Pinot Noir for the Valle d’Aosta that finishes long and pure with a broad, fine dusting of tannins. Aged 18 months in three- and four-year-old barriques. The vines are 60 years old, and that shows clearly in this wine’s depth.
