This is a great value Burgundian Pinot Noir, made from a blend of grapes from two areas – one above Saint-Aubin, and another near a little-known First Growth called Maranges, to the south of Santenay. The vines are really fine Pinots, producing small berries with thick skins: the resulting wine is every bit as good as the 2015, which we thought was the best vintage we had ever seen.
Colour is sustained, bright purple, all the way to the rim, with nose being clean and ripely fruity, recalling raspberries. The palate is full-bodied, with excellent, rich middle, and fine length – a thoroughly approachable young red Burgundy, soft and supple, already delicious, and outstanding value (for drinking 2018-2020+).
