DOMAINE J. MEURET Pinot Noir, Phelps Creek Vineyard 'Les Chênes' 2014

Having tasted through the Phelps Creek winery lineup, it is apparent that this cool climate site produces some wonderful grapes. Dr. Jon Meuret has crafted his 'Les Chênes' Pinot Noir utilizing this great vineyard. This has lovely aromatics of bing cherry, red raspberry, sage and baking spices. This leads to flavors of red cherry, red raspberry, nutmeg and pomegranate seed with orange rind. This had lovely texture and range, as well as mid-palate weight as the warm vintage has added some intensity to the red fruits. This shows off wonderful minerality despite the obvious heat of the vintage. I can see this wonderful Pinot Noir wine cellar a decade or more.(Best 2017-2027) - June, 2017 (OB)
