Domaine Machard de Gramont ‘Le Chapitre’ 2018, A.C. Bourgogne

£18.95

This is one of only three Bourgogne Pinot Noirs that can attach the vineyard name to its label. It has now been given the go ahead to be re-classified to the appellation of Marsannay from the 2020 vintage, which is a shame as it’s sure to drive the price north. This is outstanding value for money – which is a rarity for Burgundian wines. Produced from 57 year old vines, this Pinot punches well above it’s weight and offers a wonderful fruit driven style.

Tasting notes

Classical and alluring nose of redcurrants, damp earth, truffle, pepper and red cherries. Medium bodied with supple tannins and nicely weighted acidity. There’s a obvious core of red fruit here that is slightly more prominent given the warmth of the 2018 vintage. A lovely little Pinot and sensibly priced too. What’s not to love about that!
