 Wine Advocate 92 points (Oct 2013)
Based as usual on his estate?s oldest Pommard vines, Tunnell?s 2011 Pinot Noir Cuvee du Tonnelier is pungently and effusively not to mention winsomely-scented with licorice, wisteria, heliotrope, incense, cassis and elderberry. Juicy, tart-edged dark berry fruit informs a fine-grained palate with the inner-mouth florality and licorice characteristically emphasized by vendange entier persisting all the way through a long, mouthwatering finish in which bittersweet nuttiness and marrowy meat stock add depth and richness. This should unfold gloriously through at least 2022.

Sleek, vivid and open-textured, this is a wine of tremendous presence, offering currant, plum and floral flavors that float engagingly over refined tannins. The finish doesn’t quit. Drink now through 2021.—H.S.
