• Proef: Zelfs doorwinterde Bourgogneliefhebbers moeten het toegeven: het Nieuw-Zeelandse domein Ata Rangi staat garant voor top Pinot Noir aan nog vrij aanvaardbare prijzen. De intense geur begint meteen heel fijn en complex met framboos, bosaardbei, viooltjes (floraal), wat bosgrond en is licht kruidig door de edele Franse eik. Daarna proefje fijn rood fruit (aardbei, zure rode kers), complex en bijzonder elegant met een mooie, typische aciditeit. Ata Rangi behoort bij de drie beste Pinot domeinen van Nieuw-Zeeland!

  • Proef: Edward Donaldson: ‘The Donaldson Family believe Pinot Noir to be the wholly grail of grape varieties and is the reason they fell in love with wine. This is a spe-cial selection from their home vineyard, that is now over 30 years old and largely un-grafted. It was an absolute honour to be asked by ad Bibendum to make this 20-year anniversary wine. We love ad Bibendum and know this wine will end up in the hands of fine wine lovers that will appreciate the passion and energy that went in to creating it.’ ‘ Meerdimensionaal, rijk en overweldigend, gedistingeerd.’ Bijzonder, in vele opzichten. Enerzijds overdonderend Pinot Noir in expressie maar tegelijkertijd een ongekende gelaagdheid met geweldige rijkdom in fruit en elkaar afwisselende aroma’s. Een heerlijk rijke Pinot neus met rijpe kersen ondersteund door pruim en een licht gestoofde gekonfijte indruk. De smaak geeft een enorme densiteit weer met een carrousel van kersen en zwarte bes die elkaar afwisselen. De complexiteit en fijne zuren maken de wijn meerdimensionaal. Een genot om nu te drinken maar enkele jaren in de kelder en de wijn zal in ontwikkeling een enorme complexiteit opbouwen. In de grote lijn van befaamde huis, stijlvol.
