Toussaints Release 2021
A Note from the Winemaker on Vintage 2019
Pronouncing on a vintage as it is “born” i.e., “released” (just 24 months after the juice became wine) is a risky game.
The 2019’s – both in PN and Chardo – are surprisingly rich, and show the precision and focus of a long, cool but ultimately-quite-ripe vintage packed with minerality and deep flavours! 2019 seems delicious now (and the Pinot Noirs currently round out impressively and show their enticing perfumes after being decanted for three or more hours), the fine tannins and great balanced extract point to a great ageability, making 2019 undoubtedly a vintage to cellar, follow and watch it blossom!
