James Suckling Review
Very intense violets and fresh wild cherries, blueberries and a spicy, bracken-like note with a stony edge, too. The palate shows the clarity of tannin that is the hallmark of great pinot noir - super fresh, well-defined and fine yet powerful - carrying cherry flavors long and fresh. Drink or hold.
The Zephirine adeptly conveys the beauty of its name and the special qualities of its place. On the nose, it opens with a lovely perfume of spring blossoms, rose petals, and a touch of pomegranate. A striking, savory palate offers notes of fig, plum, roasted mushrooms, and a hint of allspice with black pepper. Bright and exciting from start to finish, the balanced tannic core leads to a lovely finish full of character and structure. The intense mouthfeel suggests that the Zephirine will age beautifully for the next 15 to 20 plus years.
