2017 Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Rouge, Moillard Grivot
This was a real standout wine in recent tastings, and exceptional value for money given the price you pay a lot of wines from Burgundy. Although quite light in colour it really packs a punch in terms of flavour. There is such an abundance of pure sweet fruit on the nose and palate, and fine tannins that give the wine more texture and body than you might expect from the colour. There is a subtle hint of peppery spice in the background, and this just adds to a great all-round package.
