Benoit Chevallier 'En Lutenière' Bourgogne Rouge 2021
Bourgogne Rouge from Vosne-Romanée!
The Bourgogne rouge is from the climats Aux Bas des Communes (0.15 ha) and En Lutenière (1.2 ha). A vivid, delicate wine, the pre-fermentation helps by adding a bit of complexity. Why make things difficult, when this works very well? Good 87pts Winehog

A new estate in the village of Vosne-Romanee.
A tiny Domaine of just 4 hectares. Benoit took over the family holdings a few years ago and set about implementing an extensive organic program. He was awarded the Trophée des Jeunes Talents award for his 2019 Vintage – an honor taken out at the Hospices de Beaune Wine Auction.
A star on the horizon, sadly just a few bottles this year but hopefully a few more next year although it will never be many…
