2015. Tasty, tart, and true to terroir. For a basic Burgundy, $29, this is a good value. Bright fruit, light on the palate, with a finish that invites your attention...and thirst. So glad I have three more. 12.5% abv.

I don't know if I just had a bad bottle but this was sour! Couldn't finish it.

Very reserved in the nose cherry, little rose petal. Took about an hour or so to open up. Then it was great

From a lieu dit surrounded by Gevrey. Definitely young but with a couple hour decant quite enjoyable and accessible. Tons of sweet cherry on the nose; aromatically really quite intense. Full on the palate, get more tannin than I was expecting, but very nicely balanced by a lot of acid. Enjoyed it with a roast chicken provencal but could have stood up to red meat too. Nice qpr at ~$30. Note this is not the “cuvee unique”, which apparently a 100% new oak bottling - this is the regular which is 85% old.

Old world smoky light has a glassy texture dry and stony finish with earthy qualities delicious

Others reviewed positively. Just seemed blah to me. Medium body for burgundy, nothing special at all. Slightly tart with abrupt finish.

Track this wine down. It won't let you down. Classic in style and modern in taste/finish. Wonderful next day PNO.
