2015 Fixin 1er Cru Clos de la Perrière, Albert Bichot

Silky and fresh, with purity of fruit the order of the day, this is a gorgeous expression of the Grand Cru that should have been. Notes of raspberry and violets leap from the glass, with a finish that's both fine and textured, with depth of flavour. Very good Pinot Noir.

TASTING NOTES

The maiden 2015 Fixin 1er Cru Clos de la Perrière has a fragrant, perfumed bouquet with open red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, one of the most attractive among Bichot's 2015s. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy red cherry and raspberry fruit, good depth and a crisp line of acidity. It feels sensual towards the smooth finish, completing what is a very competent debut. I look forward to tasting more in the future.
