Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: A lot of mineralite on the nose, crushed stone/ flinty aromas percolating through the black fruit. The palate is medium-boiled with fine but firm tannins, a chalky texture, and impressive depth, but there is still ample freshness on the Morey-Saint-Denis-like finish. Excellent. - By Neil Martin.

About the winery: Domaine Jean-Marc Vincent is a small estate in Santenay, Burgundy, managed by Jean-Marc and Anne Marie. They cultivate the vineyard close to organic farming and use caterpillar-tracked engines instead of heavy machines. They "tress" their vines and plant them in high density, resulting in wines of exceptional intensity. Harvest is done by hand and sorted in the vineyard. The estate is known for its traditional methods and respect for Jean Marc's grandfather's traditions.
