Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Margot 2017

Olivier Leflaive

Like it’s sister wine -Bourgogne Blanc Les Sétilles- the Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Margot represents an incredible value within it’s category.

Terroir: The Cuvée Margot is sourced from a variety of terroir within the Côte de Beaune with a large percentage sourced within the village of Pommard. Soils are a combination of limestone and clay.

Vinification Following a strict sorting of grapes and long cool fermentaion the wine is aged in a combination of oak (60%) and stainless steel with no more than 20% of the barrels being new.

Stainless steel aging helps to retain the freshness and vineyard character of the final blend producing a wine of great purity and character.

    "The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Margot bursts with expressive scents of cherries, incense and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and open-knit, with an enveloping, tangy core of fruit and melting tannins."

    "Sourced from the Côte de Beaune, this wine is smooth, juicy, packed with red-cherry fruits and pretty much ready to drink. A few tannins maintain the wine's shape as well as final acidity. Drink now."
