Jean-Pierre Guyon Vosne Romanee 2016
Red wine. Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France. Organic. 100% Pinot Noir. Domaine Guyon has the good fortune to old vines, some parcels are 110 years old. For the Vosne Romanée the vines are 60+ years old. The vinification is all whole cluster and for this wine the elevage is 10-14 months in barrel 30% new and 70% one year old. This wine is elegant and rich with cherry, raspberry and spice aromas. On the palate the wine shows elegant cherry and raspberry flavors balanced with spice and a nuanced core of earth, spice and hints of rose petal. This is a wine that will benefit from further aging, but to drink now let it breath for several hours before serving. Try this with steak tartare with French fries.
