BOURGOGNE EPINEUIL ATHENAIS DE BERU 2018
No reviews yet
- The town of Epineuil lies just north of Tonnere, actually not that far from the southern tip of the Champagne region. This is pretty far north for Pinot Noir so the wines tend to have a crunch to them, rather than the soft fleshiness of the Cote d'Or further south. But when I taste these wines from Athenais, they are always generous, in fruit, in zing and in texture. They are very low in sulphites and you taste that in Pinot Noir, it renders the wine very lively and just a touch earthy. This is simply beautiful red wine, the 18 vintage was generous and for early drinking so this Epineuil is already singing.
1701 Franciacorta is a 10 ha biodynamic certified winery.
As members of Renaissance des Appellations they follow biodynamic farming methods for all their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards. They produce Franciacorta Brut, Saten and Rose and a Vintage Dosaggio Zero in exceptional years. The range also includes Sullerba, a semi-sparkling Chardonnay 'sur lie' which is great fun, totally un-touched during the wine making and excellent value.
