Saint Roman Rouge 2019, Domaine Alain Gras
Region: Côte de Beaune
Grape/s: Pinot Noir
Production: Lutte raisonnée, hand harvested
A delicious sappy, vivid Pinot bursting with ripe, juicy cherry fruit. Utterly delicious and like the white proves there is still excellent value to be found in Burgundy.
From 35 year old vines, the grapes are 100% destemmed with élevage in 80% lined cement tanks and 20% new oak for 12 months.
“The 2019 Saint-Romain Rouge from Alain Gras was so delicious that it momentarily made the notion of superior Premier or Grand Crus totally redundant! The key is its simplicity. It is disarmingly pretty on the nose with exquisite delineation – vivid red cherries and strawberry. The palate brims with energy, the acidity perfectly judged with a transparent red fruit finish that is so moreish that you will finish a bottle far sooner than intended. Buy-drink-enjoy-repeat.” 91 pts, Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2020
