Escarpment Kupe Pinot Noir 2015
Pinot Noir
New Zealand

Average review score: 96,2

Wine Spectator : 96   Suckling : 97    The Wine Front : 95+   

New Zealand excels in 3 grape varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. So, when we are dealing with the "flagship" of one of the best producers of Pinot Noir in the country, we are faced with an admirable wine.

Full-bodied, powerful but mineral, this Pinot Noir has everything of a Grand Cru: strength, character, captivating flavors, complexity, length and above all harmony.
On the nose, aromas of ripe fruit (cherries, plums) enhanced with blood orange, all accompanied by spices of cinnamon, anise, ginger and earthy nuances. 
This complexity is found on the palate which is wonderfully greedy, on the fruit, balanced by minerality and enriched with woody notes of cedar and tobacco. 

A very great Pinot Noir that turns your head and your heart. I love.

To taste around game, beef bourguignon or beef fillet with porcini mushrooms.  

 

Wine Spectator : 96/100

This powerful wine is picked up but very expressive, with lots of tension, flavors of plum and blood orange in the heart of the wine, slowly revealing details of cedar, tobacco, cumin seeds, rosemary and black tea. Everything sings in harmony on the long finish. Drink now and through 2027. 500 cases manufactured.

James Suckling : 97/100

In this perfect harvest, the "flagship" is in impressive shape, showing lots of charismatic scents, spice and ripe cherry aromas, as well as earthy undertones. The palate is very ripe. It is an extremely greedy wine, bathed in flavors of darker ripe cherries and plums, with an envelope of velvety and fluffy tannins, offering a long, imposing but caressing palate. Brilliant. Drink now and for the next few years. Screw cap.

The Wine Front : 95 + / 100 

Kupe comes from the Escarpments field, on the road to Te Muna. Planted nearby in 1999. 50% new oak. 70% of the whole cluster.

Dark cherry oak, anise, earth, spicy cinnamon, lots of spices. Medium bodied, but firmly tannic, with a black tea character, abundant "minerality", ginger biscuit, intense and lively, with a significant length leaving a range of tannin in its wake. It takes at least three years in bottle. This is serious.
