WHY IS IT CHEAP?
I have nothing against this wine, as I think it’s drinking quite well, and made in a balanced style. Loads of tropical fruits like ripe pineapple, apricot and peaches dominated the palate. Every character was in order except the thick juice. This was the only reason why the bottle was cheap.
If you drank enough burgundies and expensive wines, the stress on finesse cannot be underestimated. Thick juice was telling you that there’s no finesse involved, just pair it with rough food.
