91 Points

Sourced from several parcels on rocky white soil, this is a vibrant style of Pinot, full of energy with a crisp acidity and fresh red summer fruits. Medium-bodied with a nice balance between easy-drinking pleasure and layers of complexity. Tannins are ripe and this is in a great place to drink now. A very pretty wine, unforced and unpretentious, and all the better for it.
