The walnut tree. Hints of tayberry and loganberry on the nose, these darker red fruit flavours flow into the palate. A wonderfully appealing and forward style, so true to its Pinot origins and highlighting how very underrated the best wines of Beaune are. This is superb and the long bright strawberry finish, balanced with a gentle tannic core, make this a hugely complete wine. Very fine.
The viticultural capital of Burgundy, Beaune was the headquarters to the Duchy in the 13th century and is now home to many winemakers and négociants. The appellation of Beaune includes both reds and white wines, though the quantity of red is significantly greater. The soils are predominantly sandier than either those to the north in Aloxe Corton or those to the south in Volnay or Pommard, producing wines that are supple and early drinking in nature. Similar to other surrounding Côte de Beaune appellations, there are no grand crus, but it does offer 42 premier cru sites, some of which are exceptional. These include Les Grèves, Les Teurons and Les Vignes Franches.
