Cotes de Nuits Villages Les Plantes au Bois Antoine Lienhardt

£46.00

Single-vineyard Pinot Noir from 50 – 70 year old vines

This is Antoine’s finest single vineyard wine, and his largest parcel, unusually planted north to south in a prime location on a gentle, 20% east-facing slope with a shallow topsoil and deep limestone below. The vines are between 50-70yo, and the wine was given a 10 months élevage in 1-7yo barrels.

Lovely, tart red fruit tones that are open to interpretation: redcurrant, blackberry, tart cherry. It’s almost beside the point because each whiff, every sip, seems different. Around the edges, the wine’s aromas also recall spring peonies and autumn leaves at different intervals. But it is the exuberant acidity, delicate and playful tannins, and fierce saline minerality on the finish that make this wine so refreshing and enjoyable.
