2011 Côte-Rôtie, Bernard Burgaud

Notes of plumand dark cherries combine with a faint savoury mushroom aroma; floral notes of heather and violets come through in the background. Beautiful plumand blackcurrant flavours, juicy and fresh with a wonderful burst of acidity on the finish; the whole wine is soft and rounded on the palate, with well integrated velvet-tannins. Balanced, this is a wonderfully simple wine, yet with an underlying power on the seemingly endless finish.

2011 Côte-Rôtie, Bernard Burgaud
Bernard Burgaud

Bernard Burgaud took over his family’s domaine at the time of his father’s early death in 1985. He assembled a few more choice lieu-dits, though it remains a mere four hectares in the heart of the Côte-Rôtie. Bernard studied viticulture in Beaune, and has maintained a more traditional approach to winemaking, with an emphasis on longevity. He was also ahead of his time in the region when he gradually introduced small amounts of new oak, foresight which led to more complex, ageworthy wines.
