“Domaine Chavy-Chouet's continued rise to stardom is great to watch. His Bourgogne Rouge is one of the most undervalued wines in Burgundy, hailing from a single vineyard just outside Pommard called La Taupe. Its sweet tannin and delicious red berry fruit make this wine a perfect match with Boeuf Bourguignon.”
“The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge La Taupe comes from a 70-year old parcel right under the Clos du Château de Pommard, completely de-stemmed with a soft winemaking approach, only extracting using pumpovers with no punching down. It has a pure red cherry and crushed strawberry bouquet that develops fine floral, rose petals aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, quite saline in the mouth with a touch of rusticity just popping up on the finish. Otherwise this is very fine.”
