A spectacular effort, the 2010 Pinot Noir La Caprice is one of the most complex Pinots I have ever smelled. Resembling a great grand cru from the Domaine de la Romanee-Conti, it offers up aromas of rose petals, wild strawberries, black raspberries, forest floor and Chinese black tea. This full-bodied, rich Pinot has an undeniable Cote de Nuits personality as well as an amazing finish. Production of this profound Pinot was 730 cases. It should drink well for 10+ years.

Ripe and generous, with plush, rich blackberry and wild berry fruit that's pure and focused, gaining depth and nuance and ending with a long, persistent finish, where this picks up a touch of smoky oak.

Vinous, July 2013
Rose petals, mint, dark raspberries all flesh out in the 2010 Pinot Noir Le Caprice. In 2010, the Caprice is quite a bit more obvious and overt than the 2011.

In 2010, the Caprice is quite a bit more obvious and overt than the 2011. Sweet dark cherries, plums, menthol and licorice develop later as waves of fruit wrap around the rich, vinous finish. Today, the 2010 is very, very young, but it will show more nuance once some of the baby fat melts away. The Caprice is the most gracious of the 2010 Pinots.
