Vanguard Pinot Noir 2013 The Hilt
€ 42,35 (in Vat)
Slightly backwards, tight and racy, the 2013 Pinot Noir Vanguard's ruby, semi-opaque color is followed by outstanding notes of rose petals, mint, sappy herbs and lively raspberry and strawberry-scented fruit. Medium-bodied and racy on the palate, with bright acidity, it needs a year or two in the cellar to fill out, but should have a long life. The elevage here is 11 months in 40% new French oak, with the balance in neutral oak.
