"It is difficult to avoid repetition when speaking of the silky texture which characterizes all of Aurelien's wines, from the modest to the lofty. Balancing weight and concentration with brightness and acidity in a long, graceful finish is clearly an intuitive skill that this young winemaker seems to get right in all his bottlings. The flavors here are of red cherry leading to darker fruits, a touch of spice interlaced with seductive suggestions of herbal potpourri. A damn pleasing Pinot by any yardstick!"
