(March 28, 2020) ... I decided to put a little chill on this wine before opening it and I was rewarded mightily - it came out of the glass with lots of typical Pinot character: earthy, strawberry, sour cherry and white pepper; the acidity helped focus it and even helped to keep it feeling fresh and light on the tongue. An interesting floral note also dipped in and out with each sniff and each sip - quite a pleasant experience. As the wine warmed in the glass it developed a nice tannin punch on the finish, while also showcasing strawberries, red currants and smoked-pepper. I love Mercurey Pinot and this one did not disappoint.
