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. But why is it so good? The answer lies with the vines themselves. They are really fine Pinots, producing small berries with thick skins – and half the plantings are old vines. The colour is purplegarnet of medium depth, aromas being very fine and perfumed. The wine will be bottled in early 2016, when its finely balanced, intense fruitiness, combined with refreshingly soft aftertaste, will make it attractive for drinking 2016-2018. Thanks to the stronger pound, we have been able to shave over 10% off last year’s price.
