A show stopper-- I haven't taste a whole lot of epineuil, but this is the first I've tasted that would stand up to a village level cote d'or wine. Not cheap (18.67 fl), but in the world of unpredictable and expensive red burgundy it is a true bargain. Strangely reminiscent of syrah: brambly mountain blackberries, smoked meat, cola, tobacco, and black plum skin.

Katie and I shared with a Ribeye, wild salmon, Brussels sprouts and potatoes. Paired very nicely. Well balanced, soft tannins, low acid and persistent 🍷🥩.

You’d be hard pressed to ID this as French. It’s fresh and primary in nose and palate. Mostly cherry. No tannins at all. Honestly reminds me of Santa Barbara Pinot. Delicious and a crazy bargain for less than $30.

We love Pinot/epineuil from this region. Smooth, balanced fruit with a delicious finish

Really very nice. Interesting to see it evolve, but at its best after 1.5+ hours in the decanter. Not cheap but for Burg a great value.

Enjoying this in a plastic cup en route to the French Laundry. Bring it haters.
