Professional Wine Reviews for Chamonix Pinot Noir Reserve 2014

Rated 91 by Vinous Media
Good medium red. Slightly medicinal scents of crushed cherry, raspberry, licorice, spices and menthol, plus a hint of smoked meat. Shows a touch of reduction but also lovely sweetness and pliant texture to its broad, mouthfilling flavors of cherry, red berries, smoke and spices framed by harmonious acidity. A very substantial, youthful, classically dry South African Pinot with fine-grained, firm-edged tannins, a touch of salinity and sneaky lingering perfume. This impressive wine has the energy for mid-term cellaring. (Vinous)

Region: Coastal Region

The coastal region of South Africa is one of the most prodigious and productive wine regions on earth, and one which covers a vast distance making up for most of the tip of the African continent. The history of South African wines is a fascinating and surprisingly long one, with the very first wines in the country being produced by settlers in the 1650s, long before many other New World countries had even been discovered. Today, coastal South African wines are wildly popular around the world thanks to their big, fruity flavors and relative simplicity. Wineries in the region make the most of the hot sunshine, the high quality soils, and the brisk oceanic winds which keep disease at bay and stop the grapes from getting too hot, and produce a wide variety of wines of great distinction.

Country: South Africa

Perhaps the most famous and well respected of all the wine regions in South Africa is that of Constantia, which holds many of the oldest and most traditional wineries in the country. Here, the temperate climate receives the Atlantic winds which cool the vineyards, and the fertile soil allows the grapes to grow to full ripeness, resulting in highly flavorful wines which are enjoyed around the world. Whilst Sauvignon Blanc varietals make up the most widely exported wines of this region, the rest of the country produces a huge and impressive range of wines, made up from varietals native to many different European countries. From excellent Champagne style sparkling wines, to aromatic fortified examples, fruity reds and refreshing whites, South Africa continues to impress and surprise, with modern techniques and technologies leading the way and producing exceptional results.
