Created from a selection of the best barrels, the 2012 Pinot Noir Joli Coeur exhibits wonderful ripeness, but it is neither over-the-top nor too powerful. It offers attractive notes of forest floor, sweet black currant and black cherry fruit, camphor and spring flowers. Finely grained tannins are present but unobtrusive. All three of these 2012s are best consumed during their first decade of life.
This prestigious collection comes to IronGate.Wine from a revered connoisseur and long-time wine collector. Lover of US wines, he began collecting as soon as he realized he could ship his wines back to his home in Canada. This was not done without struggle, and as the quantity of bottles allowed to be imported back to Canada were limited, it was time to find a safe haven for his ever-growing assembly of fine wine.
