Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2017 Domaine AS Bourgogne Passetoutgrains rosé

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: $16.00

Starting a few years ago, Arnaud had begun to produce a rosé from Domaine Sirugue's holdings on the other side of the route nationale below the Clos de Vougeot/Flagey-Echezeaux. The land is planted in passetoutgrains fashion with a blend of both Gamay and Pinot Noir. After I tasted the '15 and '16 versions under the Sirugue label, both of which proved to be snappy and fresh, with bright perfume and a kiss of savory, I was prepared to offer it alongside the rest of the Sirugue wines. However, Arnaud and Sophie have taken the rosé project under their own estate banner......Particularly when considered for the $, this is an outstanding buy for your summertime sippin' pleasure.....
