Le Caprice is easily identifiable by its deep ruby color and bright crimson tinge. Its shows intense aromas of raspberry liqueur, red cherry and blackberry mixed with Russian leather and graphite. The palate is expressive and delivers Grillottes cherry, sandalwood, raspberry, wild strawberry, pheasant fur, forest floor, hazelnut, mussels and leather, with a background of raspberry liqueur. The texture is round, tactile and mineral driven. The wine is already expressive and will continue to develop for at least two decades.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Pinot Noir La Caprice is absolutely fabulous, with soft, velvety texture, forest floor, red and black currants, some raspberries, spring flowers, roasted meats and herbs. A gorgeously rich wine, it is medium to full-bodied and capable of lasting 10-15+ years. The steepest slope of the three Pinot Noirs is called Ma Danseuse, an acknowledgment to Sir Peter Michael's wife, who was a ballerina.
