Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Domaine Heresztyn-Mazzini 2017
Florence Heresztyn and her Champenois husband Simon Mazzini have made a spectacular set of wines most of which are made biodynamically. Partial whole-bunch fermentation has produced wines of notable perfume and enormous richness, texture and depth of fruit. A rising star, whose wines have recently been very highly scored.
This is 'almost' Gevrey-Chambertin - and how it shows! From vineyards only just outside the commune of Gevrey, and absolutely bursting with character. All the fruit is destemmed, and the wine is made in generous, fruit forward style without excess tannin. Luscious, sweetish red fruits here - very good pinot noir.
