Assorted Burgundies 1
Winery : Various
2016 Faiveley Mercurey 'La Framboisière': Aptly named, the wine is redolent with raspberry-scented fruit, on the nose and flooding the palate with its sweet litheness. Bright and very appealing. Tim Atkin: 'What's not to like?'
2015 Domaine Jean-Marc Bouley Volnay: SOLD OUT Aromatic with dark red rose florals, spice and earth. Wild strawberries and darker fruits in the mouth; the flavours are soft, full and all-enveloping. Persistent, there's depth to the layers. A little bit of intrigue here.
2015 Domaine Geantet-Pansiot Gevrey Chambertin: I've been impressed by the wines from this Domaine ever since I first tasted the 2011s. While the Chambolle usually wins my heart, this time the Gevrey elicited the 'wow' word from my lips. Dark, ripe cherries on the nose with turkish delight and then a lavender/camphor note. Complex, rich and deep, very inviting.
2017 Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru Clos des Myglands: SOLD OUT Full bodied with dark fruits, notably blackberry. Very satisfying, round and soft, fine tannins.
