From the Côte de Beaune in Burgundy. An American owned Estate. Chris Newman’s father was the first American and perhaps the first foreign owner in the region. 100% biodynamic and organic since 2005. Imported by Beaune & Beyond.
All about subtlety and finesse. Darker brambly notes on the back-palate become more noticeable on the second day of tasting and it gained depth but ultimately this is nimble and silky without any feeling of over-extraction. Red fruits, roses, sap and twiggy notes, aniseed, spice and hay. The tannins are fine, smudgy and long. A pretty wine but in no way is it lacking substance. 91+
