Red Burgundy-Cote de Beaune

2015 Parent Pommard 1er Chaponnieres

The Cote de Beaune is the southern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. Pinot Noir is THE red wine, informed by more than a thousand years of knowledge accrued by the Cistercian monks who cultivated this 'undesirable' farming land. It stretches from Ladoix north of the town of Beaune, all the way down to Maranges. Its red wines are most celebrated from the villages of Volnay, Pommard, Savigny-les-Beaune, Beaune, Chorey-les-Beaune, and Aloxe Corton.

In their own words: "A generous wine with a balanced sense of substance and structure, enveloped by a fleshy and gourmand fruitiness. A spicy nose, with notes of raspberries and cherry accompanied by a touch of licorice. Ample in the mouth with elegant tannins, unctuous, and beautiful length". Seems like we have another reference point example here......
"(from 60+ year old vines). A mildly toasty nose consists of super-fresh and airy aromas featuring the cool essence of red pinot fruit that reflects discreet notes of earth and spiced tea. There is excellent detail if less refinement to the more concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent depth and length on the serious and mouth coating finish. This is very Chaponnières, which is to say robust and powerful but not especially rustic or youthfully austere; that said, note well that ample patience will be necessary. (91-94)/2027+" Allan Meadows ---------> "particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention"
