Bourgogne Epineuil 2018, Domaine Dominique Gruhier
Region: Epineuil, Auxerrois, Burgundy
Grape/s: Pinot Noir
Production: Organic certified, hand harvested, natural yeasts, low sulphur
From just outside Chablis and on the same Kimmeridgian, fossil-rich, limestone soils which seem to give wines from this part of the world a mineral character. There is more clay here than in Chablis, making it ideal for Pinot Noir.
This is a very distinct expression of Pinot and there is always a strong smoky note, which Dominique thinks comes from the unique terroir but it is also brimming with sweet red and blue fruit, spice and floral tones.
