From four different generations of plantings, from 10-80 years old. Guilhem finds the balance between the young vine vigor and old vine depth to be wonderfully complementary, making the overall whole more than the sum of its parts….He says that it is quite classic in its overall build, with impressive fruit concentration that will allow it to drink well in youth, as well as possessing great levels of extract that will have more minerality emerging with ageing. It is up to the consumer to pick their pleasure, timing wise…..He once again noted that there is no sense of opulence of heaviness here, the wine being quite balanced and bright. This one is always a big time crowd pleaser…..
“The 2018 Bourgogne-Côtes d’Auxerre Biaumont has an attractive bouquet of lemon curd, white pepper, chai tea and orange pith. The palate is well balanced with a fine, detailed, quite saline entry. There is more of a marine influence in this cuvée and the Kimmerdigian limestone lends impressive tension and energy on the finish. Excellent.” 92 Neil Martin for the 2018, NOT THE 2020 OFFERED HERE.
