The NV Brut Code Noir (Pinot Noir) is a totally seductive, sexy wine blessed with extraordinary purity in its layers of rich, expansive fruit. The Code Noir is not a wine for the timid, as it literally overtakes the senses with a heady, sensual expression of fruit. The bouquet alone is magnificent, but it is matched pound for pound by the wine’s stunning fruit and long, polished close. The oak is very nicely balanced and is felt mostly in the wine’s rich, weighty texture, although hints of sweet vanillin and spices linger on the finish. This is Lot C2I04E50, disgorged September, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.

There's an overtly leesy note on the nose that blows off a bit as this opens up, revealing vanilla, smoke, ripe Jonagold apple, quince, honey and pastry notes. This has nice mesh to it, with a subtly vibrancy throughout. The finish is long and juicy.
