An even more exquisite Pinot Noir.
The importer says:
Ray-Monde is filled with the aromas and flavors of black cherry, kirsch, violet, spice, sweet damp earth and peat. Medium bodied with long, fine, silky tannin it is a very “gourmand” wine. Approachable in youth due to the beautiful balance, the tannic presence and quality suggest it should also age gracefully, gaining additional complexity along the journey.
And Wine Front:
Very savoury, game meat, sweet, turned earth, dried leaf, truffle and dark cherry fruit characters to sniff on. Darker berries to taste, not a lick of sweet fruit anywhere here, truffle and crushed rock minerality with licks of eucalyptus and mint just barely there. Washes over the palate beautifully, a loose knit expression but with a building, lacy web of granitic tannin. An impressive, outstanding pinot noir very much marching to its own beat. Complexity, detail, interest. One to pause over in big glasses, and great right now.
The finest Pinot Noir Cooper has yet made.
And like the Doug’s, this is bottled unfined and unfiltered, with only a tiny dose of sulfur.
