Aegerter Les Greves did not disappoint, and a solid representative of a great burgundy vintage of 2018. Bouquet of very ripe and forward fruit, almost stewed fruits, with abundance of oak backing up the aromas. The content is very seductive with ripe and forward fruits, reminded me of Aegerter Belissand 1er Cru 2015 that got me hooked to Aegerter’s winemaking skill. There are massive tannins right behind the silky ripe fruits, just that it was well masked and doesn’t reveal itself easily, this is also the stunning beauty of a great vintage of 2018. I can assure you this wine can age for a couple of decades effortlessly.
