2020 Dom. de Villaine 'La Fortune' Rouge

2020 Dom. de Villaine 'La Fortune' Rouge
Burgundy, France

Highly allocated! Personal domaine of Aubert de Villaine - proprietor and director of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti! This is still an "under-the-radar" estate and a crazy bargain for the quality and pedigree of this wine! The de Villaines farm three appellations within the Côte Chalonaise, namely Bouzeron (Aligoté), Rully (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) and Mercurey (Pinot Noir). Their single-vineyard parcels are stunning examples of what this complex and amazing terroir can yield. Though their wines are quite enjoyable young, their ability to age well is what one might expect from a master such as de Villaine. Much of this is due to both the diversity of his vinestock and his organic and biodynamic methodology in the vineyards. This rouge is so silky and aromatic, reminiscent of strawberries and cherries. Open it over the next five years to fully enjoy its bright, fresh character. Organically farmed. 20-25 year old vines.

91 points, James Suckling. "This Bourgogne shows why the Cote Chalonnais is underrated. Brimming with black-cherry and wild-blackberry fruit, plus pronounced pepperiness, this is immediately appealing and has plenty of character, the crisp tannins and acidity lifting the finish very nicely. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
