100% Pinot. Rich, creamy, a little bitter. Long finish. Almost clear.

Very tight. Should have decanted this one. Started to show well at the end.

Tight but elegant. Racing acidity. Give some time for the beauty to show!

2008. Man, I still can't figure out why nobody cares about Coteaux Champenois except me. This is gorgeous. I actually might have pegged it for red Burgundy at first as it is thicker and heavier than Coteaux Champenois pinot tends to be. But it still has that characteristic Champenois minerality that doesn't really fit with any Burgundy I can think of, as if the wine was full of metal shavings. There's a somewhat gamy layer there too which comes out on the back end. This is really nice, not quite as graceful or weightless as some CC but still a very elegant and satisfying drink and packed with personality.

2008. Showed the vintage. Opened nicely over the evening, but not one of my favorites.
