$27 DOMAINE MICHEL JUILLOT BOURGOGNE, COTE D’OR, FRANCE ‘16
$27 HENRI PRUDHON BOURGOGNE “les chezeaux”, COTE D’OR, FRANCE ‘16
The vineyards for the simple Bourgogne are spread over several sectors of Nuits and Prémeaux, a large number of small sites that cover 2.8 hectares. As an “introductory” wine to the large array of appellations produced at this domaine, we could not ask for a finer example to set the stage for the grandeur to follow. This wine consistently reflects, in simple form, the classic characteristics of the wines from the area around Nuits Saint Georges: red and black fruits, bright but not too dense color, exquisite balance with lively acidity, somewhat austere at the outset but elegant and savory.

Distinct notes of perfumed rose and violets accent the ripe cherry and berry aromas and flavors. Running seamlessly through the wine is a bright streak of balancing, cold climate acidity. A light touch of vanillin-oak and mid-weight tannins give structure and a long finish. Drinking well already.
