BOURGOGNE CUVÉE SELECTION
2016 Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Tasted in the cellar with Marie, just bottled. As usual this fabulous cuvée is made from bought in grapes, sourced in the Maconnais. From a lovely vineyard in Pierreclos to be precise, which is a great plot. This is Barrel fermented then spends 12 months in old barrels, between 1 and 5 years old. The grapes are all hand harvested then sent up in small baskets form the Maconnais on chiller trucks. Full Malo is clear and this does have super breadth. Nice creamy texture, juicy but nicely textured weight. Dots of white pepper punctuate the hard white peach fruit. Very pleasing. L&S (Dec 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Paul et Marie Jacqueson
Domaine Jacqueson consists now of 18 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also 5 in Mercurey and some in Bouzeron. The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in classical fashion, before an élevage in barrel (up to 25% new wood). Under Paul, and now by his children, Marie and Pierre, the domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve, and this rubs off on the négociant 'Cuvée Sélection' which is always beautifully finished.
As usual the élevage in barrel here is extremely precise and delicately done with around 20% new wood, the Premiers Crus getting barrels with a little more toast.
