Bourgogne Pinot Noir Vieilles Vignes Domaine Gilles Jourdan 2012
An incredible depth of purple-ruby. There is a piercingly focused concentration of fruit on the nose, wild blackberry, summer pudding and a savoury edge, smoky with earthy minerals. The palate is rich, creamy and rather powerful, concentrated yet with a fresh, upbeat acidity giving direction throughout. It is particularly sad so little has been produced, yet this fabulous, stylish, rendition of what is, after all, a generic wine, old vines notwithstanding, owes much to there being so few grapes to ripen. The wine is brought on partly in wood and partly in stainless steel, which produces a refreshing, accessible style, really impressive in 2012!
