Tasting Notes

A background note of menthol sits atop the spicy combination of floral and the pure essence of dark pinot fruit. The highly energetic and equally pure middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the beautifully refined, saline and even firmer finish that also exhibits a trace of youthful austerity. This well-balanced effort is really quite lovely and very Frémiets incharacter. Score: 90-93, Tasted: Apr 15, 2018, Drink: 2026+, Issue: 70 - Outstanding. - Burghound

Guillaume d'Angerville described 2016 as one where the 'growing season wasn't easy but it was by no means catastrophic. Yes, we had some vineyards hit very hard, most notably in Meursault, Clos des Angles and Volnay villages but most of them escaped with little or even no damage. Overall we were down about 35%, which isn't great but relative to many domaines that suffered even greater losses, I would consider ourselves to be quite fortunate. We chose to wait to pick until the 26th of September and brought in super-clean fruit that was ripe with good potential alcohols and solid but not high acidities. Because the fruit was clean the vinifications were straightforward and presented no problems. As to the style of the 2016s, they are wonderfully transparent to the underlying terroir and in particular I like the sense of underlying tension that renders the wines very drinkable. But given the fine concentrations, they should have no trouble aging well too. " While d'Angerville rarely misses, I was particularly taken with the quality I found here; indeed the word classic would aptly describe their 2016s - Burghound
