Pinot Fin is apparently an ancient clone of Pinot Noir. The berries are even smaller than Pinot Noir. Arnoux's fruit is from Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanee, and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Some of the vines date back to 1959. Whether that is marketing or there is some substance there is hard to say based on this sample. It was my first time trying this wine. Deep ruby in color. The nose has sour cherries, dust and slight earthiness. On the palate, this is good but relatively simple. Cherries with slight underlying earthiness. Medium finish. This is easy to drink and will go with most food except perhaps some light sea food.
