Domaine Machard de Gramont ‘Le Chapitre’ 2019, 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.

Bold and very 2019 in style. This is a modern Burgundy Pinot from a warm vintage. There’s not a huge amount of that gamey earthy Pinot quality you get from mature Burgundy at present, this is currently all about smoky black fruit and bags of toasted spice. On the nose there’s black cherry, smoky oak, toasted black pepper, hedgerow and redcurrant. The palate is juicy and full bodied with a generous core of red fruit and peppery spice. Drink now or cellar for five years.
