Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts Tim Atkin MW 2015
Chamonix’s best Pinot Noir vineyards are all located above 490 metres, which partly explains why they are the best in Franschhoek. Aromatic and hauntingly perfumed, this is a quintessence of fine Pinot Noir: bright and spicy and very elegant with succulent red berries and vivid supporting acidity. Drink: 2015-20.
4 ½ Stars 'Highly Recommended' Platters South African Wine Guide 2016
Impressive 14 has cherry, sultry spice & cured meat nuances, fine-grained tannins & an emphatic dry finish. Spontaneous ferment; more new oak (60% new, 14 months) than sibling. Deserves cellaring 5+ years.
91 pts Vinous May 2017
Good medium red. Slightly medicinal scents of crushed cherry, raspberry, licorice, spices and menthol, plus a hint of smoked meat. Shows a touch of reduction but also lovely sweetness and pliant texture to its broad, mouthfilling flavors of cherry, red berries, smoke and spices framed by harmonious acidity. A very substantial, youthful, classically dry South African Pinot with fine-grained, firm-edged tannins, a touch of salinity and sneaky lingering perfume. This impressive wine has the energy for mid-term cellaring.

Winemaker Notes

The Chamonix Pinot Noir Reserve shows a ruby red colour, with notes of cherry, wild red berries, crushed black pepper, cinnamon and violets on the nose. Although firm in structure and intense in flavour, textures are mellow and round, expanding with time to extraordinary opulence and length on the palate. It should reach its prime in about 5-8 years after release.
