Domaine Sylvie Esmonin Bourgogne Rouge Cuvee Sylvie Burgundy, France 2019
VINTAGE : 2019
COUNTRY : FRANCE
REGION/APPELLATION : Burgundy, Gevrey Chambertin
VARIETALS : Pinot Noir
Previously known as Domaine Michel Esmonin et Fille, this eight-hectare estate in Gevrey-Chambertin has been headed up by the dynamic Sylvie Esmonin since the early ’90s. Hers are very bright, brambly expressions of Bourgogne Pinot Noir exhibiting lots of nerve and primary fruit. This bottling is sourced from a few small holdings just outside Gevrey-Chambertin and is redolent of dark berries, underbrush, and black tea. A very pure and natural style of red Burgundy, from vineyards that have been farmed without chemical inputs since Sylvie took the reins.
