Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"

Aussy is usually labelled Ronceret today. 0.5 ha here, half planted in 1998, the other half in 1948.

Hmm – this is a deeply inviting, beautiful red-fruited nose. More structure but nothing sharp or hard, more depth of flavour, complex yet melting rather than full of energy. In the finish, there is a fine, more mineral intensity. Lovely stuff here – it needs time, but this has much appeal!



There is a trace of prune character to the liqueur-like aromas of plum, spice and earth. This is fresher in the mouth as the flavors offer good energy and detail that continues onto the balanced, persistent and relatively fine finale. This is one of those wines where the message sent by the nose isn’t confirmed by the palate in the sense that it’s riper than the refined palate impression would suggest. 90/2022+


Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

Bright medium red. A bit youthfully inexpressive on the nose, like the Beaune Cent-Vignes, offering scents of black cherry, licorice and menthol. Then sweeter than the Cent-Vignes in the mouth, with its dark cherry fruit nicely framed by integrated acidity. This silky, vinous wine conveys an attractive light touch and very good lift and salty persistence. Bitouzet believes that this wine will make an ideal aperitif--"for raising morale," as he put it.
