Coteaux Bourguignons, Cuvée Hugo, Domaine Truchetet 2017

Red | France | Burgundy | 12.5% | Lighter, fruitier red

In the attempt to avoid too much oak influence in their wines, the Truchetets use an unusual barrel called a Harlequin which combines alternative staves of oak and acacia and does indeed have a harlequin look about it. The acacia allows oxygen ingress without adding brute wood notes, effectively halving the oak influence on the wine.

70% Gamay, 30% Pinot Noir from neighbouring vineyards on clay soil, the Gamay vines being around 60 years old. Bright, limpid red to the rim with vibrant red fruit on the nose before perfumed black fruits show through, silky with some floral notes, roses, really attractive; on the palate again bright red fruits, fresh and vital, deliciously layered, not complex but hugely drinkable, going to a vibrant, finish with a light tannic bite. Drink 2019 - 2022
