Jean-Marc Burgaud Cote du Py Reserve 2014

Beaujolais, Burgundy, France#GoGamayGo. Jean Marc Burgaud is one of the starlight young guns of new Beaujolais, founding his eponymous winery with his wife Christine in 1989. They farm only their own vineyards, the heart of which are clustered in Morgon's famed Cotes du Py (13ha). His youngest vines are 50+ years old. Youthful plum, wild, thorny / grippy blackberry is braced with acidity and finely grippy tannins. Orange peel is prominent, as is astringent black tea, as is acidity. All this deftly sets off a youthful, medium-bodied and tight palate. 7 barrels made, ready for drinking now, but certainly structured for aging.
