Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Pino is only 12.5% alcohol (the 2020 tasted next to it is 14%!) and has a pH of 3.55, from an atypical vintage when the wine comes through as more elegant, as this is usually one of the most intense wines in the portfolio. It fermented in 4,500-liter oak vats but matured in 600-liter barrels. This is completely unusual, and possibly unique given the conditions of the year, which might never happen again. This is th only vintage of Pino with this profile. 2019 was a very warm year, and they picked the grapes very early—it's picked with Clos Lojen, one of the earliest vineyards. So, they picked the grapes before the rain, and the grapes were pressed quite quickly, produced with very short macerations, resulting in a lighter but very mineral wine. I find it very elegant and delicious, and the soil comes through quite transparently—the chalkiness of the limestone is in the texture. 3,000 bottles were filled unfined and unfiltered in July 2020.
