2019 Catherine et Claude Maréchal Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Gravel12010
WINEMAKER: Claude Maréchal
REGION: Burgundy, FR
VARIETAL: Pinot Noir
"Crafted from the Pommard and Chassagne area, in 2019 the bouquet is again lovely, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of raspberries, black cherries, sweet soil tone and violets. On the palate the wine is medium bodied, lithe, focused and long, with a sappy core, good transparency and fine tension and grip on the long and vibrant finish. . Another great and characterful Bourgogne from Claude and in these times when Bourgogne Rouge can wholesale in three figures, this is a serious bargain." - Andrew Guard
Claude and Catherine’s aim is to produce “vins de plaisir” – wines that are approachable and bring pleasure to all who drink them. Ultimately, Claude says, “you don’t make wine with techniques, you make wine with grapes. If you harvest ripe, healthy grapes, the wines will always be exemplary.
