2008 Pinot Noir, Clos Henri, Henri Bourgeois

Tasting room@Clos Henri

This nicely concentrated, quite opulent Pinot Noir comes from Henri Bourgeois' New Zealand vineyard in Marlborough. Although still relatively young it is drinking well now with plenty of brambly black fruits. It has some structure but the tannins are soft, so it is certainly ready to drink now. It might improve further, although there is a risk its youthful opulence fading a little.

Drinking this wine brings to mind our visit to Clos Henri at the end of November 2007. See report here.
