The 2011 “G” Lot Pinot Noir is one of the best takes on the grapevariety that I have found in Argentina. Sourced from ungraftedvines from Dijon clones cultivated in Gualtallary in Tupungatoand aged for 12 months in French oak (30% new), it has awell-defined bouquet of strawberry, red currant and that elusivetincture of “Pinote.” The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshymouthfeel. It is nicely balanced with vibrant red cherries andstrawberries, before finishing with a poised, crisp finish that isrounded; but if one were to quibble, it is missing a littlepersistency in the mouth. Still, this is a very fine take on thevariety. Drink now-2015.
