A Straight Up Legit Juice: 2012 Champ de Reves Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, California
The 2012 Champ de Reves Pinot noir is true to the region and varietal without any distractions or flaws. Straight up legit generous juice everybody can get down with s’aight.
Located about eighteen miles from the coast, these vineyards range from 1400 to 1800 feet above sea level. That elevation is high enough to cool the vines considerably after a hot sunny Boone Ridge day, encouraging the individual terroir that is Anderson Valley.
Bright cranberry and raspberry liqueur aromas with an element of pine comprise this wines’ bouquet. Boisterous blueberry and earthy savory smoky flavors spread across the palate and linger through the finish. Eggs baked in Roasted Portobello mushrooms with Pomodoro sauce will pair nicely.
Rating: Very Good (88) | $45 | 14.5 % ABV
