A wonderful Pinot Noir, made from a blend of various vineyards. Silky and refined, with a translucent texture that radiates terroir throughout. A lovely, complex young wine that should gain traction over the next several years.
The 2009 Pinot Noir Les Voisins opens with a gorgeous, enticing bouquet redolent of sweet red berries, flowers and spices. It shows lovely fleshiness in a mid-weight, radiant style best suited for drinking over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. (AG)
Deep red. Intriguing aromas of red and dark berries, cherry pit, incense and cinnamon. Shows good heft but comes across as quite fresh, offering an array of palate-staining berry and bitter cherry flavors and a sexy candied rose quality. Impressively energetic pinot with excellent finishing cut, grip and sappy persistence. This benefits a lot from air. (ST)
More precise in its scents and flavors than Copain's Tous Ensemble Pinot (recommended below), Les Voisins is a selection from six vineyards in the Anderson Valley and Yorkville Highlands. It starts off with floral spice and lasts on sweet cherry flavor. The fruit is firm, juicy and cool, with a gentle rasp to the tannin. A light-bodied Pinot for filet, seared rare.
An exceptionally pretty, high-toned and ripe nose of red berry fruit with spice hints leads to delicious, mouth coating and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension on the vibrant, complex and moderately persistent finish. I very much like the balance here.
