  1. David Duband Nuits Saint Georges 2015

    www.burghound.com, Rated: 89-91 Points, Rated: Outstanding, "A cool and ripe nose once again presents a markedly different aromatic profile with its ripe yet cool array of sauvage-tinged aromas of red and dark berries, freshly turned earth and humus nuances. There is excellent delineation and verve to the utterly delicious medium weight flavors that terminate in a saline, clean, focused and beautifully intense and persistent finish. Lovely juice." David Duband, who exploits, among other vines, the former Jacky Truchot parcels, told me that 2015 "basically gave us a near perfect growing season that, much in the same way that 2005 did, produced fruit with high maturities but also high acidity, which is very rare in Burgundy. I chose to begin picking on the 5th of September and brought in super-clean fruit though yields were disparate, which is to say they ranged from 25 to 43 hl/ha. Sugars were strong without really being high and most wines came in between 12.5 and 13%. One major difference for me between 2005 and 2015 is that in the former vintage I used no whole clusters in the vinifications but in 2015 I used between 60 and 90%. Stems of course don't make or break a given vintage but purely from a stylistic standpoint, I prefer my 2015s. That said, I suspect that they will behave in much the same fashion as did the 2005s, which is to say that they're pleasant and charming now but my feeling is that they will close down once they're bottled and when they will reemerge is anyone's guess. When they do though, collectors will be in for a treat as everything is present for the wines to be great in time." The Duband 2015s are almost all very good and several are absolutely first-rate and I would recommend them to you." asting note: (opened from personal storage). This remains quite deeply colored with a still largely primary nose of ripe dark berry pinot fruit, plenty of spice and a hint of sandalwood. There is gorgeous complexity to the still moderately firm, intense and relatively powerful flavors that display striking complexity on the solidly structured but not hard finish that delivers outstanding length. This is turning out to be better than I originally foresaw and I have upgraded my score accordingly. As to drinkability, for my taste this has just now arrived at its peak though it should be capable of holding here for many years to come. Tasted a number of time recently and while I have had largely consistent experiences note there was one bottle that was quite badly reduced while requiring several hours for it to dissipate."

  3. Banks Road Yarram Creek Pinot Noir 2016

    From the Banks Road stable made from fruit from growers in and around Yarram Creek this is good. It sits beautifully on the palate with fresh red berries and savoury tannins. There is good length and weight too. Cheery wine with red cherry and cranberry crunch but it's softly delicate at the same time.

  4. Spy Valley Pinot Noir 2015

    "Following in the footsteps of the highly accoladed 2014 vintage is another solid, (albeit less viscous and less fruity), version of this quality Marlborough outfit. I tasted it straight from a freshly-opened bottle and know it will be better with some food and decanting. This 2015 is a little more savoury, and blessed with some grippier tannins that will make it age-worthy. 16/20 from me." Cheers, Justyn @ Wine Culture, 29/11/17.

  5. Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2013

    Ripe hand picked fruit, gentle winemaking and maturation in French oak have resulted in a complex and powerful wine, with aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and Black Doris plums, a rich and silky smooth palate with fine grainy tannins to match the fruit. Excellent value, drinking fantastically well now and will develop and cellar for several years.

  6. Sileni Estate Satyr Pinot Noir 2017

    "A step up in flavour intensity from the last vintage, (that also showed bafflingly good value), the new 2017 vintage is darker-fruited and has more tannin richness. Then comes more complexity that keeps a Pinotphile like me so very happy for mid-week drinking, but also wondering how they do it for such a good price and so much flavour at only 12% alcohol; obviously great viticulture comes into play here. 16.5/20."

  9. Glaetzer-dixon Nouveau Pinot Noir 2017

    2011 Gourmet Traveller Wine Young Winemaker of the Year certainly knows how to make a more-ish Pinot Noir; this latest release of Nouveau is light and layered but still packed with fresh red fruits from carbonic maceration, (whole bunch fermentation with the exclusion of oxygen).

  10. Moorooduc Mcintyre Pinot Noir 2015

    "From the home estate vineyard. From a great year. The power and the glory. In a nutshell. The spice, the fruit, the herbs, the flowers. The road of tannin. The snap of strawberries. This is a wine of balance, power and presence and that’s all you need to know." 95 Points, Campbell Mattinson.
