A pet favorite of mine, as the 2016 was incredibly good, and exactly what I look for in Bourgogne level wines: authentic typical village character with the house style well represented, at a bargain hunter price. From three Vosne based Bourgogne level parcels les Combes, les Croix Blanches, and les Pâquiers, this year’s is a very good wine whose most intense element is that of Vosne typical violet florals, with light spice and an admirably appealing texture. This is once again a wine that value hounds should covet as an everyday Vosnean option, if not quite up to the transcendent level of the 2016.
2019 Jean Pierre Guyon Bourgogne rouge
“Aromas of wild berries, rose petals, orange peel, spices and plums introduce Guyon’s 2019 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, a medium-bodied, bright and velvety wine that’s lively, charming and perfumed. This is a fine cuvée in the making and will be worth consideration.” 88-90 William Kelley
“Glowing purple, exceptionally heady nose, some orange blossom, incredibly spicy, takes me out of the region, a little bit in the direction of syrah, I think because of the whole bunch approach, but it is still absolutely lovely. No more intensity than a Bourgogne but it is really lovely. Tasted: November 2020” 87-89 Jasper Morris
