Full bottle 1,318 g. This producer used to be called Decelle-Villa but has restyled itself as a domaine. Winemaker for this wine was Jean Lupatelli, taken on for the 2021 harvest by Dom Georges de Vogüé. Certified organic.
Transparent garnet. Good grunt on the nose with a light orange hint and very gentle tannins. Good freshness of fruit – none of the heavy solidity of some Choreys. Lightly pungent, this wine could be enjoyed already but should have staying power too. Not alcoholic despite the ripeness of the vintage. I wonder when the fruit was picked? Real zest here. In a Burgundian context this is VGV.
