Stick your nose in this and you get that mouthwatering, autumn leaves, smoky sous bois, minerally pinot perfume, wild strawberry, red cherry, orange rind, sandalwood-clove hints. The palate is mellow and supple, orange-inflected red berry fruit, hint of vanilla wood spice, sweetly suggestive mercurial pinot style all the way, autumnal with soft tannins and a fine backbone of acidity. Yet again, a really moreish, impressive pinot from Bulgaria. Hats off.


Tasting Notes

It might just be the best thing to come out of Bulgaria since Stantcho Stanev, Colonel Gadaffi's chief camel herder (look it up, Wikipedia wouldn't lie!). We regularly recommend this to anyone looking for a delicate red Burgundy, not simply because it's a fraction of the price, but because it genuinely offers a better experience than any Bourgogne Rouge we have ever tried and doesn't look out of place next to a decent Chambolle-Musigny or Morey-Saint-Denis. It's one of the softest, prettiest Pinot Noirs on our list and has an effortless charm and grace, as all European Pinot Noirs should, but seldom do. The winemaker has gone to all the trouble of selecting Burgundy Pinot Noir clones to plant in his vineyard (clone spotters may be interested to know that they are as follows: 777 - 3,6 ha; 521 - 1,2 ha, 375 - 0,9 ha, and 115 - 4,1 ha).
