2014 Bourgogne Rouge “En Montre Cul”

Domaine Régis Bouvier

2014 Bourgogne Rouge “En Montre Cul” Domaine Régis Bouvier - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $27.00

At the northernmost end of the Côte de Nuits, Régis Bouvier farms a parcel far removed from the idyllic agrarian landscape typically associated with Burgundy. En Montre Cul lies within the Dijon city limits, rising up from the asphalt to give a view of housing projects and other not-so-picturesque markers of unrelenting urban development. Although the city has all but invaded this long-standing viticultural haven, growers like Régis work hard to preserve the winemaking tradition at this unusual crossroads. The historically acclaimed vineyard, so named because its steep grade offers peeping harvesters a generous view of their upslope colleagues’ rears, is the source of fine Pinot Noir that yields one of Bouvier’s signature bottlings and one of the best values in red Burgundy to be found. His fifty-year-old vines provide a deep, chewy red that punches well above its price point, an accessible introduction to the Côte de Nuits for anyone looking to casually enjoy great Burgundy. –Anthony Lynch
