Aries, Domaine Bertrand Ambroise, Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2010, Burgundy, France
100% Pinot Noir
From Maison Bertrand’s oldest Bourgogne vines, all over 60 years old, augmented by parcels of village-level fruit, and from a superb vintage; this is outstanding for this level. Medium-weight with silky red and black fruits alongside a complex array of savoury spices. Drinking superbly now and over the next 3-4 years.
"Light bricky red. Attractive sweetness of senescent red fruit. Hint of toffee sweetness on the nose. Dry in texture but the tannins are fine. Lots of flavour though not especially charming. Persistent though and reasonably priced for a more mature wine." (JH) 16/20 Jancis Robinson.com
