(2011 Vintage) Medium ruby color. e aromatics of this wine leap out of the glass. Aromas of cranberry, red apple, toasty cinnamon and vanilla hint at the ﬂavors to come. With the ﬁrst sip, Alouette glides across the palate with an elegant balance of acidity and bright fruit, with suppleness from beginning to end. A Pinot Noir in every sense, with an abundance of ﬂavors from cranberry and strawberry to a spiced cider note that develops mid-palate and carries through to the end. e ﬁnish is full of minerality while keeping with the rich, bright fruit and ﬁrm acidity, which plays well with the light gripping tannin that rounds this wine out nicely.
