Smoky, cherry, lavender, clove and blackberry nose. Gosh, what a palate! Fresh red fruits, tangy cherry, plum, rhubarb, blood orange, minerals and ferrousness. Lip smacking texture, slippery and driven and a lovely firm finale to really frame the wine. Moreish. More pinot than gamay for me. The gamay rounding out the angles of the Pinot Noir. Fabulous stuff and one of my favourite wines of the year. 06/6/2020
From vines planted in 1930 producing just 22Hl/Ha. This wine is a field blend of 50/50 mix of pinot and gamay on a gravelly site near Meursault. When the Domaine started making wine in 1934, the estate only bottled this cuvée and Volnay Clos des Chènes.
An equal blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay, the 2017 Bourgogne Passetoutgrain has a simple but satisfying bouquet of dark cherries and crushed strawberries. The palate is well balanced. Here the Pinot Noir is more expressive than the Gamay, finally reverting to something almost Fleurie-like on the blueberry finish. Delicious. 87-89 Points Drink: 2019-2022 Neil Martin vinous.com Jan 2019
