Reduction renders the nose difficult to assess though there is plenty of zest to the more obviously mineral-driven flavors that possess excellent delineation on the focused, persistent and linear finish. This is often on the edgy side young and while this is clearly quite firm, it is not unduly backward.

There are few if any producers who outshine Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry in the village, and as the crystalline ruby red robes across the range for his 2010s attest, he's at the top of the heap for this vintage, as... There are few if any producers who outshine Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry in the village, and as the crystalline ruby red robes across the range for his 2010s attest, he's at the top of the heap for this vintage, as well. Comparing the aromatics to the preceding, here we have a decidedly redder pinot dominated nose of macerating strawberry, cherry and other red pinot fruits, allied to toasty wood smoke and a sense of place from a whiff of stony minerality. The palate, too is pure red fruit dominated, almost airy, and brings that whiff of minerality from the aromatics into play. As this wine opened in the glass, it took on some weight, suggesting that a couple years in the cellar won't hurt it in the least. Good stuff.
