Tasting Notes: At 5 years of age, we're already dealing with a mature Pinot Noir sourced from the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Chateau Des Charmes vineyards. Over-ripe strawberry and tart huckleberry fruit are supported by layers of savoury notes of earthy, forrest floor, mineral, spice and oak. A decidedly Old World style with
 a long finish with lingering acidity and slightly bitter, dusty tannins. Drink now-2018.
