La Soeur Cadette Bourgogne Rouge 2021

Burgundy, FranceValentin Montaney is based in western Bourgogne’s Vézelay, where he is caretaker of his parents’ 22ha of organically farmed vineyards. In 2016, Valentin began a négociant business, creating the La Soeur Cadette range. This Bourgogne Rouge comes from 60 year old vines on the Cote d'Or, in clay and limestone soils. It was aged for 8 months in 225L barrels. Fragrant cherry, perfumed raspberry, is studded with mustard seed and lined with candle wax through a subtly medicinal spiced finish. Tannins are finely sticky, and acidity is easily lofted, making this prime for drinking now, ideally with autumn veg / wild mushrooms.Tasted: 15 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
