Tupinier Bautista Mercurey Vieilles Vignes 2017
The cooler Cote Chalonnaise area of Burgundy is truly coming in to its own as global warming is making the Cote d'Or uncomfortably torrid. Prices are fairer too and winemaking skill in the ascendent. This nicely mature and ready to drink pinot is composed and shapely with a firm Gevrey Chambertin like backbone. Delicious, balanced and rewarding.
