Professional Wine Reviews for Clos Henri Pinot Noir 2013

Rated 92 by Decanter
This is one of the best value 2013 Marlborough pinots, boasting a wealth of ripe cherry and summer berry fruit aromas, not to mention attractive spicy and savory complexity. The structure is proudly emphasised on the palate, the tannins really impress and the balance is right on. Drink now. (Suckling)
Rated 90 by Robert Parker
Pale to medium ruby colored, Clos Henri's 2013 Pinot Noir offers a heady, meat and floral laced nose with touches of beef drippings and violets over the red currants and cranberry foundation. Medium-bodied and elegantly constructed on the palate, it has a chewy tannined backbone with plenty of freshness cutting through the tight-knit fruit, finishing with minerally accents.

Winery Clos Henri

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes have been cultivated in and around the Burgundy region of France for centuries, where they have long been favored by vintners for their wide range of flavors, their thin skins and for producing wines which have light, smooth tannins, and a beautiful garnet red color Whilst they remain one of the flagship varietals of this special region, their wide popularity and recent status as a fashionable 'romantic' varietal has led to them being planted in almost every wine producing country in the world. However, the Pinot Noir demands a huge amount of care and attention from the wineries that wish to grow it, as this varietal is particularly susceptible to various forms of mildew and rot. Despite this, the grape is otherwise a favorite with wineries for the fact that it requires little extra effort once it begins fermentation. Pinot Noir is also widely known for producing some of the world's most famous sparkling wines, being one of two key grapes for the production of Champagne, and several other sparkling varieties.

Region: Marlborough

The Marlborough region of New Zealand's South Island is widely regarded as one of the most ideal regions in the world for the production of high quality, flavorful and characterful white wines. The Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes which are grown there have a long ripening period as a result of the cool climate and brisk oceanic winds, meaning they eventually express plenty of the terroir's features in the bottle alongside their fresh and various fruit flavors The region also supports many other grape varietals, although the most commonly grown grapevines aside from Sauvignon Blanc are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since the 1970s, Marlborough has consistently impressed the wine world with its produce, and has dominated the New Zealand wine industry, with over sixty percent of the country's vines grown in this beautiful region.

Country: New Zealand

When it comes to New World wines, few countries can compete with Europe quite as well as New Zealand, where modern techniques and technologies are allowing wineries to get the very best results from the wide range of imported grape varieties which flourish there. The warm, sunny climate coupled with brisk oceanic winds and remarkably fertile volcanic soils produce grapes of exceptional quality, and New Zealand wines are notable for their ability to carry the terroir they are grown on into the bottle. Whilst the Sauvignon Blanc wines are probably the most widely exported and popular to come out of new Zealand, fantastic results have been produced from the Bordeaux style wines made in the Auckland region, and the Pinot Noir wines of Central Otago. These Pinot Noir wines are far more fleshy than their Burgundy counterparts, and are probably best enjoyed when young, and bursting with the fruit flavors they carry so well.
