Appealing on the nose with whiffs of Raspberry, cherry and oaky plum. Rich, long on the palate with full bodied firm harmonious structure ending in layers of velvety tannins which act as a guarantee for many years of positive development.

Pinot noir is the most food flexible varietal. Its richness comes from a multitude of layers of flavour. Enjoy with fish, poultry, game and red meat dishes!

in the vineyard : The 2003 vintage was an excellent summer which presented cool conditions and allowed for ideal Pinot noir ripening. The Pinots from this vintage have proved to offer fantastic fruit driven wines. This is the sixth Tête de Cuvée release since 1997 and follows in the tradition of blending a handful of the best barrels to carry this title. In this case it is twelve barrels!
