2017 Beaune, Domaine des Croix

Product: 2017-0750-00-8012906

Description

From four separate parcels and with 15 percent wholebunch, this is a very pretty wine, with small red-berry fruit on both the nose and palate. There is a crunchy feel to the fruit, with lovely detail and purity. A wine you cannot help but fall in love with. Drink 2020-2024.

David is delighted that he finally has a good crop for the first time in many years. Furthermore, he is very pleased with the quality and style of the reds, highlighting their clarity, definition and gourmandise, pointing out that these are airy, red-fruited and pure wines in the same mould as 2000, a vintage which drank well young and still tastes good today. He has extracted an extra level of colour and texture by working the fruit a little harder and carrying out a longer maceration than in the past few years, with impressive results.
