Bass Phillip

The Estate Pinot Noir 2016

See previous note for a 2016 Estate in September 2022. Mid to transparent ruby red. A gorgeous fragrant nose - red fruited, stalky, dried herbs. The palate just as gorgeous - all those aromatics transfer to the medium weight palate with medium plus intensity. A class act from Bass Phillip as always. — 4 months ago

Reserve Pinot Noir 2012

The Reserve is made from 5 rows of vines in the centre of the closely spaced (9000 vines per hectare) north east facing vineyard planted on silky loam. The unfiltered Reserve is matured for 20 months in new Alliers oak. Regarding colour this is mid crimson with tawny notes. A stunning nose - a red fruited perfume (cherry) with loamy Sous Bois notes (compost heap). Those aromatics translate to the medium bodied palate finishing with fine silky tannins. Very Bass Phillip. Obviously in the conversation regarding the best Pinot Noir in Australia. I would give the mantle to the BP Reserve. It should be for the price. One should not approach a BP Reserve under 10 years of age. This is of top 1er Cru and Grand Cru standard. — 21 days ago

A rarity on this app with the tell-tale microdot label. When you travel to NY, please bring a bottle as this isn’t available over here… 👍🏾

Yes, I was amazed that Delectable recognised the wine from that little label, Ron. Now that Bass Phillip is owned by the Burgundian, Jacques Fourrier, it may be more available in the US.

Guessing this is in its sweet spot. 15 years old and showing some maturity, but still youthful. — 3 months ago

Good to see Bass Phillip finally making it to the USA now that it is owned by Fourrier. I have been buying it for decades. Certainly in the conversation regarding best Pinot Noir in Australia. I have many notes on Delectable.

Rossj - Bass Langhe Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Bright and lively. Fruit is bursting through. Not a very complex wine but it’s very reliable and a perfect accompaniment to sautéd red snapper and seafood risotto. — 3 months ago
