Germain-Robin Single Barrel Pinot Noir Brandy (750ml)
This is a younger 13 year old cask from 2001, but it is off the chain delicious. Vinous grappa notes on the nose that are completely airbrushed and blended out on the palate. The acidity of the pinot noir is immediately obvious, especially having tasting the other two single barrels first. This is entirely different than the three other selections. There's weight, and boldness, and more depth. It's not just fruit and oak, but also earthy elements that pop in and out through the finish. Tremendous.
