Jane Eyre 2020 Burgundies
Winery : Jane Eyre
Jane Eyre arrived in Burgundy in 2004. Now, after a decade of producing wines under her own micro-negociant label, she has been awarded La Revue de France's 'Negociant of the Year 2021'.
Eyre's approach is one of careful nurturing - techniques to suit the season and interference only when necessary. 'I figure if I buy the best fruit I can afford and fastidiously sort it, then what needs to be extracted will come out without me forcing things. '
2020 Jane Eyre Cotes de Nuits Villages: Eyre's notes - 'A blend of two parcels located mid-slope in Comblanchien that we have been producing since 2014. This year I have been impressed by the intensity of its nose; suave and gourmand, reminiscent of a ripe raspberry pie just out of the oven; so seductive! This intense Pinot exceeds the scope of its appellation with its depth and persistence on the palate. Drink now and over 7/8 years.
2020 Jane Eyre Gevrey-Chambertin Village: Eyre's notes - 'From two sought-after parcels, the "Combe du Dessus" just across from Chambertin Castle and "En Champs" a little further up the slope opposite the Champeaux 1er cru, 50% whole clusters. As always, this Gevrey takes us to a higher level of aromatic complexity with hints of raspberry, blackcurrant, sandalwood and fresh undergrowth. Drink now and over 12 years.'
2020 Jane Eyre Savigny les Beaunes 1er Vergelesses: Eyre's notes - The vineyard is located in the upper part of this famous climate, on an eastern slope, which gives it a fresher style. This year, its fragrance is intensely reminiscent of juicy black cherries, the ones from the markets, bursting with sunshine. The palate remains, beyond the richness of the year, of an incredible finesse of tannins while offering a real volume in the mouth. 2020 is certainly a great year for Savigny. Drink now and over 10 years.
2020 Jane Eyre Fleurie (cru Beaujolais): Screw cap. One hundred percent whole bunch from 30 and 100 year old vines.
