Arlaud Bourgogne Rouge Roncevie 2014
A classic red Burgundy with the thrill and verve of the new wave. This site in Gevrey-Chambertin exemplifies the Gevrey style of crisp, clean red fruit with just a hint of bramble and savoury wildness. The winemaker, Cyprien, chooses to bottle this as a bourgogne rather the more elevated classification of Gevrey-Chambertin, making this bonkers value.
This demands food that play off the sweet and savoury, a game bird with redcurrant jelly for example. When the meal is over, this is a wine that slowly unfurls in the glass. One to get lost in.
