Kusuda, Pinot Noir, 75cl
This wine is made from hand harvested grapes, which were then rigorously sorted with the greatest care. Aged for 15 months in French oak barriques (29% new) and bottled after coarse filtration without any fining.
The Wine Advocate. 93/100
Earthy and savory on the nose, Kusuda's 2016 Pinot Noir reveals scents of beetroot and sous-bois alongside hints of cherries and cranberries. On the palate, it shows the seamless combination of intensity and weightlessness that is the hallmark of Kusuda's wines, with supple tannins that seem to almost disappear on the lingering finish. Delicate, perfumed and stylish, it's already delicious and should only improve for the next 5-6 years.
