Domaine Arlaud Bourgogne Roncevie 2017
100% Gevrey-Chambertin - Roncevie is a lieu-dit that was until 1964 Gevrey-Chambertin Villages. Half is still Gevrey Villages, the other declassified purely for political reasons. Cyprien Arlaud, the grandson of original winemaker and owner, has come into his own over the past 10 years, as one of the most exciting growers in all of France. Along with biodynamics, he uses horses to plough domaine vineyards in order to keep the soils as healthy and alive as possible. Pure, benchmark Burgundy.
WS90: A pretty red, offering rose, strawberry, cherry, earth and subtle vanilla flavors. Elegant, with ample intensity and a long, firm finish where the oak asserts itself for now. Drink now through 2025. 300 cases imported.
