Tasting Notes

The 2012 Bourgogne, from parcels in Chambolle and Vosne, is a big wine, especially at its level. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and licorice all flesh out in a deep, vinous, over-achieving wine. A deep, fleshy finish rounds things out nicely. Readers who want to experience Cecile Tremblay's wines without spending a fortune should start here. The Bourgogne was made entirely with destemmed fruit.

88/90
Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2014

There is enough reduction to knock down the nose. There is good volume to the ripe and delicious middle weight flavors that are shaped by moderately firm tannins on the robust and solidly well-concentrated finish. This is a quality Bourgogne that should drink well young if desired. Note: 0% whole clusters
