Bourgogne Epineuil Cuvee Juliette 2016 Dominique Gruhier by Emanuele Spagnuolo 16/12/2018
Of course the Pinot Noir is really a big grape!
It is an exceptional receptor, a litmus test of the terroir where it is grown.
In this Bourgogne the Pinot Noir is from the Epineuil area north of the Cote d'Or, not far from Chablis.
The cuvee Juliette is simply a fabulous wine.
Intense wine on the nose with notes of fresh fruit and a very pungent spice.
A wine without too many compromises, whole cluster vinification and a touch of new wood (30%).
In the mouth it is intriguing, not too elegant, but vibrant and bold.
A gourmet wine not to be missed, with a long and powerful finish.
