2017 Trajet Reserve Pinot Noir
The 2017 Trajet Reserve Pinot Noir is a journey into something new for Le Cadeau Vineyard. In both the vineyard and the winery we have set no limits – all possibilities are open. The result during the 2017 harvest was a 3 barrel fermentation of 100% whole-cluster grapes from native yeast. It is deep and complex, yet soft on the palate with well integrated tannins that anticipate very long-term ageability.
Awarded 93 points by James Suckling: "This offers beautifully deep aromas of ripe cherries and attractive purity with a sheen of toasty oak and transient reduction that breathes off with air. The palate has such silky, suave tannins and delivers a very balanced and complete impression."
