2012 Domaine Grosbois Clos du Noyer
Wine & Spirits 94
"Nicolas Grosbois farms his vineyards organically, including this south-facing hilltop where the vines are 40 years old, growing in clay and sand over limestone. He ferments in open cement vats without added yeast and then ages some of the wine in tank, some in oak barrels. The Clos du Noyer produced an essential 2012, deeply layered with scents of earth, leather and bright red currants to contrast all that darkness. If you don't like Brett, look elsewhere, but if you can handle some beautiful French funk, this may make the hair on the back of your neck stand up (as it did mine). It brings to mind Gauloises, the scent of blood and the gritty night streets of Paris: Film noir in a glass."
