About This Wine
This phenomenal wine will need no introduction to those who know this Estate. It has long been one of the very finest examples of Bourgogne AOC. This wine has long been one of the very finest examples of Bourgogne AOC. It comes from four parcels of Pinot Fin, the revered Pinot cultivar, including one parcel planted in 1959 at Premeaux, south of the Nuits-Saint-Georges township. The latter vineyard perennially suffers from millerandage (resulting in tiny berries and bunches) and thus generates very low yields of rich, concentrated juice. There are also parcels in Chambolle, Vosne and Nuits proper. Even at this level, the wine is fermented with 40% whole bunches and 50% of the cuvée is raised in 2 year old barrels, the remainder in tank. Old vines, low yields and great terroirs-this possesses the kind of perfume, texture and intensity of fruit rarely seen at this level. Unfortunately, our allocation of the 2014 is smaller than normal.
"Top Value. A highly expressive and unusually pretty nose for a wine at this level leads to supple, round and utterly delicious flavors that have a lovely mouth feel, all wrapped in a complex and lingering finish. This is an excellent Bourgogne and would make a great choice for a house red." 86-89 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 61
