The Le Cadeau 2011 Pinot Noir Rocheux - which had only just been bottled the week I visited the property in July, and I consequently postponed tasting until September - is spirited and bright, with an invigorating tang of berry skin to its tart cherry and a seedy crunch to its red raspberry. Sappy and mouth-filling though lean in texture, it finishes with a mouthwatering influx of salinity as well as notes of juniper berry, sage, black pepper, resin, crushed stone and tar that solidify its sense of stimulating impingement and sheer grip. This ought to perform well through at least 2025. (Rocheux vinificateur Jacqueline Yoakum delivered a baby during the 2012 harvest and Jim Sanders is raising the highly promising Rocheux from that vintage.) Score - 93.
