Jean-Claude Boisset Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Ursulines 2016
Winemaker Notes :
This wine has the noblest pedigree imaginable, coming as it does from the Côte de Nuits. The grapes were grown on old vines on which specified growing techniques were used: controlled yields due to severe disbudding, cluster thinning if necessary, working of the soil, little or no use of fertilisers, environmentally friendly pest management that respects beneficial wildlife.
In appearance, the 2016 vintage is brilliant ruby red. The nose opens with aromas of strawberry and raspberry enhanced by nice spicy notes. On the palate, it is a scrumptious and juicy wine with a beautiful length. Overall, the wine is powerful, tender, concentrated and will be ideal for ageing.
Wine SpectatorA smoky version, offering black cherry, blackberry, earth and spice flavors to match the toasty oak. This is succulent and leaves spice and smoke notes on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 715 cases imported.
