2016 Domaine Nicolas-Jay Pinot Noir

Cellar Tracker Community 91 points (as of 4/29/19)

John Gilman 92+ points (rated 8/18) - The 2016 Pinot Noir “Willamette Valley” from Nicolas-Jay is a lovely young wine, offering up impressive sappiness and precision in its bouquet of red and black cherries, a bit of beetroot, a fine base of soil, woodsmoke, hints of mustard seed and thyme and a very well-done framing of spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very nicely balanced, with a sappy core, fine transparency, ripe, seamless tannins and a long, tangy and nascently complex finish. This is so well-balanced that it is quite easy to drink in its youth, but the wine has plenty waiting in the wings and I would recommend letting it build in complexity with some bottle age. Fine, fine juice. (Drink between 2021-2055)
