It opens up beautifully. But it opens up slowly. There is definitely a matrooshka doll onion skin Pandora’s box motif going on. It’s beauty does not give it the full marks the vintner and pointsters do: it is a tad thin and not nearly as eloquent as other PNs in this price range, and of course BM (not to be confused with BS) likes to amp up the price. Stick to their under-valued and reasonably priced lovely Pinot Gris…
Time was, when we swore by BM PN, buying it by the case; the “regular” and reserve. Then it went over $30. Then it went over $35. Then it went over $40. Now we can rest our case, so to speak.
Price: Gifted, how wonderful is that, but $40 at the vineyard and a yardstick more at private wine stores in YVR.
Market Liquidity: A bit too much clique and not enough populism.
