Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from November 14 2018

Wine: 2014 Fixin "Les Arvelets"

Producer: Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet

Comment: Very mild reduction shaves the top notes off of the otherwise very fresh and ripe earthy and gamy dark currant aromas. This is almost pungently mineral in character with a lovely sense of vibrancy to the delicious and delineated medium weight flavors that deliver beautiful depth and length on the well-balanced finale. This is also really quite a lovely effort and worth checking out.

Score: 90-92 Drink: 2024+
