Domaine Poulleau, Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2020

This charming 2020 Bourgogne rouge offers a delicious balance of ripe fruit and delicate Pinot Noir freshness with fine, lithe tannins and an elegant finish.

£23.99

The fruit for Domaine Poulleau’s Bourgogne rouge comes exclusively from their holdings in Volnay, Meursault and Savigny-lès-Beaune which would otherwise make up those specific appellations’ bottlings. Commercially it is important to produce a Bourgogne rouge, however as it is often the most challenging wine to make, this provides an excellent insight into both the style of a producer and their mettle. This wine has immediate appeal and charm, with a lasting impression of freshness and bright red and dark berry fruits. A small percentage of the 2020 Bourgogne rouge was raised in used oak, as the overall yields were so small for the vintage that there was a surplus of barrels which would otherwise spoil and waste if not filled with wine. This does not mask the fruit or impart oak flavours, but simply adds a little more weight and an understated class and complexity to the delicious, fruit forward palate.
