Aubert Reuling Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Pinot Noir Reuling Vineyard, which comes from a clone from one of Burgundy's most famous Vosne-Romanee vineyards as well as the Calera clone, exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, a cool climate, raspberry and red cherry-scented bouquet, hints of bluer fruits in the mouth, lots of depth and richness, and good acidity, spice and elegance. This medium to full-bodied 2009 is not as powerful and rich as the 2008 and 2007, and in that sense it is more Burgundian texturally and weight-wise.
Wine SpectatorIntense and spicy, marked by a tight band of fresh-turned earth and dried blueberry and wild berry flavors that show savory floral scents. Ends with loamy tannins. More tightly knit than past Aubert Pinots. Best from 2013 through 2023. 252 cases made.
