    Winemaker's Notes:

    Begin with a touch of sweetness suggesting strawberries, plums, and blackberries, whose richness is framed by ample acidity and firm tannin structure. The long finish displays toasty caramel and white pepper. 2006 Pierre Léon will improve in the cellar for 1 to 2 years and age well for 8 to 10 years from its release date. This classic pinot noir will pair beautifully with a wide range of dishes including osso buco, filet mignon topped with mushrooms, lamb chops, seared duck breast, and grilled Portobello mushroom.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Here the expressive nose is impressively complex with a pretty and layered mix of both red and blue pinot fruit notes, violets and briar hints that also characterize the delicious, supple and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that deliver fine length and while the finish is dusty, it avoids the dryness of the Aliette. Worth a look if you enjoy understated pinot.

    The 2006 Pinot Noir Pierre Leon is mostly Dijon clone also aged for 14 months in 50% new French oak. It exhibits a similar friendly personality with plenty of plush, tasty black fruits and good length.
