Domaine Sylvain Pataille, Fleur de Pinot 2014
Powerful new oak dominates the nose but there is intense cherry fruit with spice and forest floor too. Not for all tastes, but this has real depth and concentration on the palate underpinned by light tannins and rippling acidity, making it textured and long. Interesting and challenging as a rosé style.
