Domaine Nico Pinot Noir Le Paradis 2016
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Vallée d’Uco|
"A perfumed and floral wine with hints of fresh tea and strawberries. Some stones, too. Full-bodied, very linear and long. Polished and fine tannins. Pretty, focused and balanced. Tension. Best new pinot from here." James Suckling 94 points Drink 2023-27
DELIVERY MARCH 2023
Medium red. Alluring Pinot perfume of raspberry and rose petal. Distinctly tighter on the palate than the 2017, with a powerful chalky, crushed-stone character currently keeping the wine's red fruit flavors quite clenched. It's hard to imagine that this very saline wine, from a cool, wet year, will expand as much in bottle as the 2017 will, but it should nonetheless evolve slowly.
