With roughly 85% of the crop lost to hail, one would expect something far more course. Nope. Such are the sacrifices to maintain a commitment to quality above all else. This is rockin’ good, once again. A value hunter’s choice par excellence, the finesse meets complexity found here is awesome, just like last year…..
“Eight percent whole bunch was used for the 2014 Beaune 1Er Cru les Reversées this year. It has a tightly wound, tertiary/sous-bois inspired bouquet with black rather than red fruit, the whole bunch imparting freshness and complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, good density but still fresh and vital. The stemminess comes through just a little in terms of texture, but otherwise given that around 80% was destroyed by hail (three barrels from 0.60-hectares), this is a great success for Thomas Bouley. ” 90-92 points Neil Martin
