Arnoux Lachaux Bourgogne Pinot Fin
Price: $48.94 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
Mild reduction suppresses the underlying fruit today. Otherwise there is good freshness and verve to the detailed and intense middle weight flavors that possess better depth than most examples along with fine persistence. Worth a look.
– Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Score: 86-89
The 2016 Bourgogne Pinot Fin unfurls in the glass with aromas of berries, currants, raw cocoa and licorice. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and succulent, with tangier acids and a tighter-knit core than the 2017 rendition, concluding with a long, fragrant finish. The cuvée’s name indicates its provenance from superior selections of Pinot Noir that produce small berries and open clusters.
– William Kelley, Robertparker.com, Score: 89
The 2016 Bourgogne “Pinot Fin” comes from several parcels and sees 60% whole cluster. It offers attractive brambly black fruit on the nose. The palate is well defined with red plum and raspberry, and a pleasant sous-bois element towards the nicely framed finish.
