Bourgogne Blanc les Graviers, Domaine Ghislaine Barthod 2020

Tasting Notes

The first vintage of Ghislaine Barthod's Bourgogne Blanc, the fruit comes from Les Gravieres in Gilly-Les-Citeaux by Chambolle-Musigny. These are young vines planted on stony soils. Fermented and matured in demi-muids (double-size barriques). Pale lemon in colour with a layered nose of waxy lemons, poached pear and a touch of sweet spice. Fleshy orchard fruits and lively acids combine on this layered and moreish palate. A wine that punches above its weight with a silky, long finish. An impressive first vintage for this new cuvée. Drink now, or over the next five years.
