Marie et Vincent Tricot "3 Bonhommes" Pinot Noir 2022
We met Marie et Vincent in October 2022 at Orcet - tasted out of tank/barrel and held an extended field tour of their vineyard. A most generous couple with their time and knowledge - who productive great and distinctive vins from this hot bed region for natural wine!
The 22 is one of the best Auvergne wines I've experienced. An intoxicating nose of perfumed cherry, violets with a subtle earth undercurrent. Expansive on the palate but still very focused. The performed characters on the nose then merge with the palate so effortlessly. Pure, striking and true to type, this encapsulates the Auvergne's blessed terroir. A pleasure to drink. TC
