The “flagship” wine of Paul’s Portfolio!  I don’t need to tell you that the Pisoni vineyard is often compared to the best (1er and Grand Cru) vineyards in Burgundy, and Paul puts a real Burgundian twist on this source!  This wine equals the best of the previous Lancelot bottlings and could even surpass it!  VERY LIMITED!

 

Paul Lato Notes: “Deep red ruby in the glass, this voluptuous Pinot Noir has a dizzying aromatic profile bursting with lavender, warm asphalt, and salt-cured meats. The palate has great depth in fruit and earth qualities reflective of the one-of-a-kind Pisoni Vineyard. Planted over 30 years ago with what are rumored to be cuttings from one of the finest Grand Cru’s of Burgundy, this singular site continues to amaze in the balance, concentration, and ageability of fruit it delivers.”


Pinot File 97 Points: "Dark garnet color in the glass. The nose soars over time with enticing aromas of raspberry compote, rose petal, fertile earth and vanilla biscuit. Silky in the mouth, with plenty of sap yet lacking a husky character, offering flavors of earth-toned, mineral driven, blackberry, black raspberry fruit flavors along with a riff of spice. This wine kept grabbing appeal over time in the glass and was considerably more generous when tasted the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. The tannins had been tamed, and the finish was of uncommon length. Decanting of this wine would be advisable if drunk now. A superb rendition of this vineyard’s terroir. Score: 97"

 

Robert Parker 2014 – 96 Points: “Coming from a block that was recently replanted (this cuvee won't be made after 2015), the 2014 Pinot Noir Lancelot Pisoni Vineyard is always one of the larger framed, mineral-laced wines from Paul. Offering lots of crushed rock and mineral nuances, with a core of red currants, raspberry, smoked earth and charcoal, it leans towards the blacker fruits, is medium to full-bodied, gorgeously textured and has a finish that won't quit. Like all of Paul's wines, it's impeccably balanced. Give it a year and drink bottles through 2026.”
