Domaine Henri Prudhon & Fils, Chassagne-Montrachet 2012, Côtes de Beaune, France
Tasting Notes: A pucker-worthy pinot noir.
Pale ruby in color, this red burgundy has an aromatic nose of fresh-picked red fruit including strawberry, red cherry, earth and sweet baking spice.
On the palate the wine is medium in acidity with medium-plus, dry, chalky tannin.
There is also a tart red fruit aspect to this Burgundy which also has a slightly vegetal character.
Bottle Note: Each wine bearing the “Rosenthal Wine Merchant” mark has been produced in limited quantities by a dedicated artisan. The growers with whom I work follow traditional methods and produce their wines in as natural a manner as possible. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the wines I select are unfinned and unfiltered. Therefore, you may find that sediment forms in the bottle. This is a natural occurrence. All my wines are shipped from the estates at which they were bottled to the point of distribution in the United States with every care taken to protect them from the vagaries of temperature fluctuation.
