WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

The 2017 Domaine Nico Grand Pere is packed with intense fresh red fruits notes balanced with medium-high acidity. Low perception of alcohol. Fine and silky tannins with a lengthy finish.

TASTING NOTES:

Bright medium red. Slightly liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, strawberry, loamy spices and coffee, lifted by a topnote of rose petal. Lovely supple, pliant Pinot Noir with sweet red fruit and spice flavors nicely buffered by integrated acidity. Combines noteworthy silky depth with serious inner-mouth lift to project a sensation of weightlessness. Finishes juicy, firm, saline and long. Very suave Pinot with mid-term aging potential. My second bottle of this wine was even better, as it began very tight and minerally, then opened slowly with air to show increasing richness and tangy red fruit character.

- Vinous, 93 pts. 

This has very attractive, fragrant allure. Super complex, with a subtly savory side to the nose and a powerful, focused palate. Assertively linear tannins. Very focused, very chiseled and very long. Dark and red-cherry flavors abound. A parcel of the first pinot noir parcel planted by Catena in 1986. Drink in the next five years.

- James Suckling, 93 pts. 

The difference between the 2017 Grand Père Pinot Noir and the Grand Mère comes from the soils; they come from the same vineyard but selected from different parts, and this is very stony and full of limestone. There is more austerity, and it feels less juicy, with very fine tannins, with an ethereal texture; it feels light but there is inner strength. It's a very Burgundian Pinot Noir.

- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 pts.
