Beaune 1er Cru Sizies 14
Here the cool and restrained nose offers up notes of earth-infused red currant, cherry and discreet spice nuances. There is good energy and lovely detail to the more refined middle weight flavours that exude a fine bead of minerality on the dusty and mildly austere finish that is presently ever-so-slightly edgy and it’s not clear that it will ever completely harmonize.
