The fine 2009 vintage in Burgundy lifted quality across the board, and this pinot delivers attractive structure for a well-priced premier cru. Medium-bodied but concentrated, it hints at cherry and bitter apple skin along with edgy tannins. It could cellar well for four years and pair nicely now with roast squab or duck.
