2017 Beaune, Pertuisots, 1er Cru, Domaine des Croix

Product: 2017-0750-00-8025452


David loves the elegance of this vineyard, which comes from a cool site with shallow topsoil and hard limestone subsoil. This is crunchy, pure and focused with plenty of energy. There is a silky, suave mouth-feel but with a rocky undercurrent. Drink 2022-2028.

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.
