Domaine Follin-Arbelet’s wines are a revelation. This red’s vibrant acidity gives it an edge of bright freshness, while the beautiful Pinot Noir fruit is sensationally smooth and graceful. Burgundy enthusiasts will appreciate the total purity and finesse in this translation of Aloxe’s terroir. It can certainly be cellared for a few years, though I appear to have appended to my tasting notes, in awe, “Drinkable now—very much so!”
