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


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!
