Bachey-Legros - 2018 - Santenay 1er Cru "La Comme" Vieilles Vignes - 750 ml.
France - Burgundy - Côte de Beaune
Red - Vintage: 2018 - Size: 750 ml.
The old vines of this Santenay 1er Cru "La Comme" once again give a superb wine, rich and full-bodied with very present fruit and lovely spicy notes. The palate is well structured and full of fine tannins just waiting to melt.
Toasty, roasted mocha fills the nose on this wine, edged with a little earthiness. Mocha also envelops tart, bright cherry fruit at the core of this wine. Both freshness and finely woven tannins suggest that it takes more bottle age for that mocha smokiness to integrate. Drink 2022–2030.
