Domaine de Villaine Bourgogne Rouge La Fortune 2019
Rarely have we had the opportunity to pick grapes from Fortune as beautiful, wonderful, sugar-laden. Fruity, greedy and tender at the same time, you can drink it now or wait two or three years to enjoy all the freshness and grain.
La Fortune is a single lieu-dit on the slopes above the northern portion of the village of Bouzeron, planted to young vines. This is fermented in open-top wood fermenters, with about one-third whole clusters to produce this forward, accessible wine, with a lovely cherry fruit scented with violets. On the palate, the wine is fresh and youthful, lacking the substance of La Digoine. - 91pts Decanter
