Domaine Tupinier Bautista’s Bourgogne Rouge is everything you’d want from a Burgundy Pinot Noir. It is aged in oak barrels of up to 3 years old. After 10 months of ageing in oak casks, the wine is blended in vats and bottled 2 months later. It drinks beautifully on release but will develop over several years. It is voluptuous, fruity, round and delicate. There is no shortage of red fruit – strawberry & raspberry – with blackberry & violet notes in the background.
Manu Bautista farms this amazing 11 hectare Mercurey Domaine which is based in the small hamlet of Touches in Burgundy’s Cote Chalonnaise. He succeeded his step father in 1997 and the family can trace their vine growing roots back to 1770. The wines from the slopes of Mercurey, which is close to Givry and really an extension of the Cote de Beaune, offer fantastic value and really impress with their fruit and power in their youth. A new winery was built in 2016 and provides state of the art modern equipment mixed with traditional wine making techniques.
