Peter Michael Le Caprice 2017
To the eye, the 2017 Le Caprice offers a red ruby color with bright crimson highlights.The wine shows intense aromas of raspberry liqueur, red cherry and blackberry mixed with Russian leather, violet and graphite. The palate is expressive and delivers Griotte cherry, sandalwood, raspberry, wild strawberry, forest floor, hazelnut, and leather, with a background of raspberry liqueur. The texture is fresh, round, and mineral driven. The wine is already expressive and will continue to develop for at least a decade.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the 2017 Pinot Noir le Caprice is pale to medium ruby-purple and has an incredibly perfumed nose offering up an array of baking spices and incense over a core of black raspberries, kirsch and redcurrants with wafts of roses, pomegranate and dried Provence herbs. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with wonderfully ripe, silt-like tannins and great freshness supporting the intensely perfumed fruit, finishing long. 1,445 cases are expected to be produced, to be released in February 2019.
