Style and When to Drink
This was the opportunity to discover the character of Combes du Dessus, which was revealed to be straight and elegant with silky tannins and a touch of class. The tannin character of Pinot Noir when it taps into limestone is typically quite tight in youth and this is no exception, but they are fine grained and stretch the finish. They provide the wine with a good line and the potential for some ageing. The style is straight and refined, rather than full and rich. The bio-dynamic farming enhances the energy of this already fresh and bright wine.
This lieu-dit would benefit from three years bottle ageing, ie 5 years post vintage, but has the the potential to mature for several more…6 to 8 years at least.
