Burghound.com Top Value Choice of the Week

Suggestion from July 01 2020

Wine: 2017 Marsannay "Le Boivin"

Producer: Château de Marsannay

Comment: This too is quite pungent as the firm reduction and wood toast make for a potent combination. The rich, concentrated and quite powerful middle weight flavors possess better mid-palate density and solid dry extract before concluding in an austere, backward and saline-infused finish. Patience advised.

Score: 90-92 Drink: 2025+
