Le Grappin, Boucherottes 1er cru 2017

RRP £43.43

Australian Andrew Nielsen worked with Patrick Bize before making his own Savigny. He purchases fruit from young growers with underrated appellations. Andrew focuses on Pinot’s perfume, describing his approach as ‘no-touch’ winemaking. Tannins are a delicate wisp. Floral and fresh, this softly rounded and juicy wine is very inviting with its svelte texture and succulent fruit.
