Ma Danseuse charms with its red ruby color and bright maroon
tinge. Its bouquet is vibrant and delicate with aromas of roses,
raspberry, Griotte cherry, forest floor, red currant, and a subtle
note of violet. Elegant, fragrant and refined, the 2010 Ma Danseuse
has in the palate a wonderful concentration of red fruits and spring
blossom with subtle notes of rare spices embracing a silky texture
and lingering aromatic finish. It will age gracefully for a decade.
"Stylish and elegant, with a sophisticated mix of plum, raspberry, spice and savory herb flavors. Very complete, delicate and balanced, with a long, soothing finish."
"Ruby-red. Explosively perfumed aromas of red and dark berries, potpourri and musky underbrush. Penetrating and bright on the palate, offering sweet but sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and an exotic floral pastille quality. A suave, silky midweight that shows outstanding sweetness and precision on the long finish. Morlet describes this wine as "'more intellectual than the Le Caprice.'"
International Wine Cellar
"The 2010 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse boasts serious richness and power, but perhaps too much so as it comes across as a bit heavy. Plums, black cherries, licorice, smoke and melted road tar all flesh out in a wine that is all about intensity and opulence. The relative warmth of this vintage vis-à-vis 2011 is quite evident. If the 2010 acquires additional finesse it might merit a higher rating, but today it comes across as a bit overdone. "
