Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Rouge La Taupe
Domaine Chavy-Chouet
France - Burgundy - Bourgogne AOC

Chavy-Chouet's Pinot Noir is classified as humble Bourgogne Rouge, but the fruit for it comes from an excellent single-vineyard site near Pommard. La Taupe's parcel was once part of the Pommard AOC.

The wine is juicy with a great mouthfeel. It has classic Bourgogne Rouge aromas, with a candied cherry character as well as strawberry, raspberry and spice, yet the structure and length of finish reminds one of a Pommard - ripe & rich with a bigger body.

2018 Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Rouge La Taupe - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2018 Bourgogne Rouge La Taupe comes from 50- to 60-year-old vines and is completely de-stemmed. It offers blackberry and raspberry fruit on the nose, which is fresh and full of joie-de-vivre. The palate delivers crunchy black fruit, bilberry and hints of mulberry, touches of iodine appearing on the chunky finish. This is everything you want from a Bourgogne Rouge. - Neal Martin"
