2019 Bourgogne Rouge, Domaine Sirugue, Burgundy, France
Domaine Robert Sirugue is a family-run estate based in Vosne-Romanée. In 2000, Robert Sirugue passed the property on to his daughter and son, Marie-France and Jean-Louis, who represent the 4th generation of wine growers. The vineyards now occupy almost 12 hectares of sustainably grown vines including their jewel of Grands Echézeaux and also parcels in Les Petits Monts and Les Mombies in Chambolle-Musigny. Most of the bottles disappear into top restaurants around the world which is why the wines are still relatively unknown despite their undisputed quality. The wines are intense, elegant and vivacious and will age brilliantly.
A spectacular Bourgogne rouge wine with a pure bouquet of cassis and blackberry fruits, showing wonderful clarity of bright red fruits on the palate. From three ‘climats’ in Vosne-Romanée, FlageyÉchezeaux and Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, this is a very lovely and elegant Bourgogne Rouge.
