Red wine. Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The les Vignes de Maillonge bottling from Laurent Juillot is made from vines that were planted in 1958 and 1982. The wine is completely destemmed and raised in fifteen percent new oak. The 2017 version is beautifully red fruity on the nose, wafting from the glass in a mix of cherries, strawberries, mustard seed, lavender, a fine base of soil, woodsmoke and just a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and tangy, with a good, sappy core, fine soil signature, ripe tannins and a long, nascently complex finish. This is nicely structured and will need some bottle age to blossom, but it has lovely constituent components and will prove to be an excellent village wine in due course. 2025-2050." — 89+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
