Aegerter, Les Reversees 1er Cru, 2017
9.0 stars
13 Dec 2019

For this kind of price range, I can almost guarantee you to taste sour grapes for most red burgundies. Paul Aegerter produces wines in a very different style, I believe Paul picked his grapes much later into the harvest season, thus producing a ripe and forward style wine, which is more appealing than most premiere cru out there. I didn’t like the start of the presentation, sourish cherry, but slowly morphed into ripe cherry with a big fruity style. Content was ripe and forward, good layers, although a bit hollow on the mid-palette. With time in the decanter for about an hour, it opened up to be much more approachable.
