Gerard Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Bourgogne|
Bourgogne Pinot Noir reflects a pure expression of Pinot. It's a beautiful illustration of the uniqueness of Pinot Noir, a variety with a direct aromatic purity and complexity. Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir is not typical of the appellation, in that one must wait 2 or 3 years after bottling to fully appreciate this wine's potential.
Bursting with aromas of cherries, berries and rich spices, the 2020 Bourgogne Rouge is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a rich core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, discreetly oak-inflected finish. This is another fine rendition of this old-vine cuvée.
The 2020 Bourgogne Rouge has around 10% new oak. Bright blackberry and raspberry scents on the nose here, well-defined with a skip in its step already. The palate is smooth on the entry with such fine tannins that they could belong to a Premier Cru. Very precise on the finish. Lovely.
