Ratings and Tasting Notes:JS=95 Aromatic and seductive nose of violets, wild blueberries, raspberries, thyme, pine, potpourri, orange zest, cloves and slate. Medium-bodied with fine, chalky tannins. Elegant, yet firm and structured, with layers of cool berry fruit and wild herbs. So much wild energy, spice and fragrance. Pinot noir vinified as whole grapes, layered with stems. Unfiltered and unfined. 2,700 bottles made. Drink or hold. WA=91 Aromas of cherries, raspberries, orange rind and spices, framed by a deft touch of toasty oak, introduce the 2018 Côteaux Champenois Aÿ Rouge Cuvée des Froides Terres, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine that's seamless and penetrating, with powdery tannins and a sapid finish.
