There was just a suggestion of Selosse that comes to mind when tasting this; and when I say this, I'm thinking about that complex interplay of ripeness, oxidation, and oak in these wines. In typical Selosse fashion, I believe this cuvée will roll some eyes too in a blind, for better or worse. Rich autolytic and oxidative notes, gentle oak, along with ripe savory Pinot fruit, balanced by searing acidity and flinty minerality - what we have here is a deliciously intriguing wine. Notably, no ladybug in sight despite the vintage.
