Description
'The debut release of a new bottling, the dark ruby-hued 2007 Pinot Noir de Villiers is from a 13.1-acre vineyard planted in 1997 on pure limestone soils. Cropped at an unbelievably low .78 tons of fruit per acre, the wine spent 16 months in Francois Freres oak barrels (30% new), and was bottled without filtration.' (Robert Parker Jr., www.erobertparker.com, Aug. 2010) Parker has not yet reviewed the 2008, but the debut 2007 vintage, which he refers to above, received a score of 92. Expect similar excellence from this hugely respected Pinot producer.
Tasting Notes
First up and seriously perfumed, the 2011 Pinot Noir de Villiers is a gorgeous wine that excels both for its complexity and for its richness and [breadth] on the palate. Giving up notes of ripe cherries, wild strawberries, exotic flowers, citron and spice, it has medium to full-bodied richness, a core of sweet fruit and a rich, seamless texture. In fact, it has a rare level of depth and texture in the vintage, and while beautiful today, I imagine it will evolve gracefully. Score - 93. (Jeb Dunnuck, erobertparker.com, Aug. 2014)
