The 2016 Beaune 1er Cru les Epenots was reduced to four barrels this vintage, fully destemmed with 35% new oak. It has a vivid blueberry and black cherry bouquet with a touch of crushed rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite linear and strict with a slight chalkiness/mineralité toward the tensile finish. You can feel the nascent energy here.
