2017 Brosseau Wines Old Vines Brosseau Vineyard Chalone Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., 45 cases, $53. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. A catnip nose filled with aromas of blackest cherry, black grapes and ground savoury spice. A striking wine of obvious exceptional pedigree offering the essence of mouthwatering, earth-kissed black cherry in a mid-weight style. Nicely composed with a good backbone of refined, supportive tannins and a good underlying cut of acidity especially noteworthy on the long and exuberant finish. When tasted the following day from a previously opened bottle, the wine was even more spectacular, filling the glass with cherry fruit, spice and a floral component. Nothing sexier than the scent of Pinot floral perfume. Score: 96. Reviewed August 29, 2020
