Pearson's Notes

Fresh raspberry and strawberry touched with brown spices and provocatively wreathed in musky peony-like floral perfume are underlain with rich nut oils. In a manner familiar from many of the best Lapierre vintages, this manages to be seductively soothing and subtly creamy yet animating and refreshing. There is a mouthwatering mineral savor to the long finish that I can only liken to lobster shell reduction. Mathieu Lapierre believes that the prolonged, relatively cool carbonic maceration he favors promotes natural antioxidants so that a wine like this has impressive stability from the open bottle despite its absence of sulfur. If you have a cold cellar, try to save a portion of this for 4-6 years.
