Case of 6
Most of the crop was lost which is a pity as this is a beautiful wine with a delicate bouquet of pure red fruits and an elegant seasoning of spice. The palate is sweet fruited with flavours of wild strawberries and raspberries balanced by silky tannins and an energetic freshness. This wine will be delicious in a few years but should age well. Drink from 2018.
Reviews & Scores
Gorgeously fragrant, so Burgundy, so Beaune. Deeply fruited on the palate and very fine tannic texture. As precise as his pouring. Long, spicy finish. Good Value.
16.5 Points, Jancis Robinson MW
A notably ripe but agreeably fresh nose speaks of cassis, violet and plum. There is outstanding richness to the impressively concentrated and generous flavors that are shaped by a moderately firm tannic spine that belies just a hint of rusticity. Note that this mouth coating effort should drink well young. It is also very Champ Pimont in character which is to say that it's not a wine of finesse but it is notably rich and ripe.
