Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2014 Cyril Audoin Fixin le Rozier

This is the northern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. It is home to perhaps the noblest expression of Pinot Noir on planet Earth, if not the noblest expression of any wine on Earth; the minute yet palpable differences from single parcels of land were intuited by Cistercian monks who farmed the 'golden slope' for approximately two thousand years. From Corgoloin in the south, to Marsannay in the north, the finesse and complexity of the wines is at times both hauntingly beautiful and mind boggling. Its most celebrated villages: Nuits St Georges, Vougeot, Flagey Echezeaux, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Gevrey Chambertin, and Morey St Denis.

Price: $39.00

A parcel that Cyril has farmed since 2005, it is immediately evident that the soils here are even more austere/rocky, as both the color is and fruit tone is paler red and the wine is less generously fruity, smelling more calcaire. Then, in the mouth, you chew it, but not so much from tannic intensity, just pure dry extract. This is very well done.

A cool, airy and solidly complex nose combines notes of white and red flowers with those of earth, red currant and a hint of raspberry liqueur. There is fine density to the attractively textured and minerally middle weight flavors that culminate in a very mildly austere and rustic finale. This is an excellent Fixin villages and also well-worth your attention. (89-91)/2021+" Allan Meadows
