Wine tasting notes

This bright, racy Bourgogne is drawn from three parcels; one-third comes from some old vines in the Hautes Côtes, one-third from vines in Maranges (villages level) and one-third from Bourgogne proper, from a parcel on the edge of Puligny-Montrachet (same plot that gifts the Bourgogne Blanc). It's an opportune marriage with the Puligny vines bringing perfume, the Maragnes bringing generosity of the fruit, and the Haute Côtes the structure and perfume. It is aged in barrels, of which around 20% were new. Meaty and sappy, it shows crunchy redcurrant, black cherry and anise like fruit, fine structure and a focused, lip-smacking finish. Very fresh and 'Hautes Côtes' in style - this offers plenty of bang for your buck.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014) - 86 to 88 pts

Dec 2015 - Neal Martin -The 2014 Bourgogne Rouge had been racked two weeks prior to my visit. Matured in 20% new oak, it has a fine bouquet with plenty of raspberry preserve and cranberry aromas. The palate feels soft and rounded in the mouth with fine volume, good acidity and quite a plush finish in the making. This could be just a lovely red Burgundy once in bottle.
