Bourgogne Epineuil Côte de Grisey 2018, Domaine Dominique Gruhier
Region: Epineuil, Auxerrois, Burgundy
Grape/s: Pinot Noir
Production: Production: Organic certified, hand harvested, natural yeasts, low sulphur
Like the ‘regular’ cuvée this is fruit-filled, mineral and smoky, but there is more body and intensity.
Côte de Grisey is a single vineyard with near non-existent topsoil and steep slope – up to a 45% grade and produces a wine with great minerality and chalky suffused energy. This austere terroir is brilliantly suited Dominique’s whole-cluster, light extraction, low sulfur winemaking which gives the wine great fruit concentration and transparency.
A brilliant Bourgogne rouge that is both characterful and distinct.
