Bourgogne "Les Grandes Terres" 2013, Jean-Marc Pillot
What to drink on a Tuesday night in this fair autumn? This is a gem of a bourgogne rouge from what promises to be a balanced, bright, fruity year. Morello cherry, ripe rhubarb and aniseed on the nose. A touch of orange juice. A mix of tangy berry fruit, orange pith and wheat texture on the palate. Good intensity for a regional appellation. Still rustic though. Scores 24/30 for a Bourgogne rouge.
