Now the 2016 Engersteinz. Lighter vintage but still very intense and red fruited nose. Mega red fruited. Cherries galore. So pure detailed and refined. Gorgeous mineral. Sickie interplay here between mineral and just gorgeous fruit. Tobacco, ash, mulch as well. Forest scents. Spice, clove, menthol. Keeps opening until it’s a perfume assault. The first 10 minutes of this wine is 0-60 mph. Holy shit. Elite Burgundy nose. Gevrey/Vosne. Wow, sick fruit, so fresh and pure. I mean the fruit quality on Jurgen’s wines is something special. It’s decidedly pure but also so singular. Which makes them so drinkable. They are Grand Cru all the way. What sweetness of fruit and texture. Awesome. Côte de Nuits elite village style wine. What a wine!

Wow. Wtf?

Nose is cherry lipstick. A hint of smoke. Amazing.

Palate is so juicy and delicious. Interesting. Almost like elements of sweet chili pepper. God you you going this whole bottle. So good. Fresh cherry. Cherry lipstick. So fresh. Off the charts freshness.

So salivatory. Should be called cuvee Pavlov.

Terrific texture. So silky.

This is a village wine. One of the best Village pinots I’ve ever had.
