Red Burgundy-Cote de Beaune

2016 Tawse Beaune 1er Tuvilains

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.

Price: $55.00

From the very first vineyard to enter into the estate red wine production, this has been a solid and completely loveable pet favorite of mine since I bought a ton of the 2012 version. This year, there were only 3 barrels made, so I am only getting two cases.....this year's was outstandingly charming, just plain gorgeous and pure. A little * awarded here.
"Here there is no reductive funk on the floral-infused red berry fruit aromas that introduce succulent and surprisingly refined middle weight flavors that flash only a trace of rusticity on the balanced and lingering finish. Tuvilains is rarely anything other than overtly rustic yet that is not the case with this pretty example. (89-92)/2023+" Allan Meadows
