2017 Patrice Rion Cote de Nuits Villages Vieilles Vignes
For 2017 Red Burgundy the top wines are obviously fantastic but at the entry level, the wines are very approachable just like the 2000 and 2007 vintages. We tasted this yesterday and there was a lovely perfume, good depth of fruit, and a surprising amount of minerality for the village level. A tremendous value and a downright great drinking burgundy that will cellar for a few years if you don't get to it in time.
Vinous (Neil Martin) 90-92 points! "The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Vieilles Vignes comes from three lieux-dits, but mainly from Les Plateaux. It has an attractive black plum and mulberry bouquet that becomes more and more floral with aeration. The palate is almost leisurely on the entry, with finely tuned acidity that lends freshness, yet the second half is surprisingly mineral-driven, leading to a stony, almost stoic finish that suggests it will benefit from two or three years in bottle, possibly more. Excellent."
