93/100 Punkte Robert Parker Dec 2016 From 30-year-old vines on calcareous marl soils, the 2014 Elfingen Rüeget Pinot Noir has an intense and noble, pure and highly elegant ' I tend to say Burgundian ' Pinot bouquet of wild red berries and milled limestones. Silky textured, really fresh (with a bit of natural carbon dioxide) and a firm tannin structure, this is a well-concentrated, intense and persistent Pinot that is far too young to be consumed today. It is powerful, tightly woven, intense and concentrated in its fruit so that you can ' and should ' easily store it for another three to ten or more years. A fascinatingly finesse-full, fresh and firmly structured, almost masculine Pinot from the Aargau. Highly recommended.
93/100 Punkte Robert Parker, 29th Sep 2017 The 2015 Thalheim Chalofe has a deep, pure, fresh and coolish bouquet of ripe cherry. On the palate this is a full-bodied, rich and persistent but also pure Pinot Noir with power, intensity and endless juiciness. It is well balanced and provided with remarkable finesse, salinity and tension. This is a gorgeous Pinot Noir from the Aargau. Tasted in Zurich, August 2017.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker, Sep 2017 The 2015 Elfingen Rüeget opens with an intense, gorgeously spicy, pure, chalky and cherry-scented bouquet with red fruit and white peach aromas#terrific! On the palate this is a full-bodied, round but dry and spicy Pinot Noir with an enormously juicy and concentrated palate. Powerful, firm and fresh, with great tension and purity but also concentration#this is one of my favorite Swiss Pinot Noirs.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker Feb 2018 Is there any better, finer or more sexy Pinot Noir on planet wine at this price than Perrochet's 2015 Auvernier Pinot Noir? I'd bet there is not. The 2015 opens pure, very fine and elegant but also beautifully fruity on the nose, where perfectly ripe cherry and red berry aromas are displayed along with the purity, freshness and clarity of a great limestone terroir. Round, concentrated, dry and very elegant on the palate, with beautiful lift, grip and tension though not that much depth, this is simply gorgeous Pinot Noir with great finesse and endless charm. Oh, how much I love this crisp, brittle finish! Although the past vintages were very low in yields, the 2015 still sells for a ridiculous 22 Swiss Francs, even though many of you readers would buy it for at least triple that price. From biodynamically farmed vineyards. Tasted February 2018. Tasted again from the same bottle ten days later, and the wine was still impressive: elegant, lively
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker Sept 2017 The 2015 Jenins Pinot Noir Sélection Barrique has a dark purple/ruby color and offers an intense, warm and generous bouquet of ripe fruits, toast, limestone, herbs and flint stones. The second impression is lovely, pure and fresh and gives the wine a coolish soul. This wine is full-bodied, ripe, round and elegant on the palate, with very fine, perfectly integrated tannins and a long, juicy finish that reveals nice salinity, concentration and freshness. This is a very good Pinot Noir from 600 meters altitude. Tasted in Zurich, August 2017.
