devevey’s 2011 beaune 1er pertuisots…

Update 13.1.2014(5.1.2014)billn


Jonah time again!

Whilst the few Devevey wines that have passed my lips I remember enjoying – particularly so, the whites – I’ve never-yet managed to pay a visit to understand more about this domaine. However, here is a wine that for more than one reason, I wouldn’t buy again – a shame as it’s one of my favourite Beaune 1ers too…

2011 Devevey Beaune 1er Pertuisots
Bright medium colour. The nose has a faint undertow of P, but overwhelmingly the aromas are dominated by pretty, precise red berry notes, whilst in the background there’s also a greener, herby note. Fresh and lithe – there’s a bit of an acid-kick in the mid-palate too – for-sure not the ripest of wines; yet it has energy and character – I’m enjoying this first glass. Truth be told, over 3 hours this gradually got meaner and the P component became a bit more obvious…
Rebuy – No

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    What is P?

      Hi Eirik
      Thanks for your message – P is short for pyrazine – but a particular type of pyrazine. Take a look at the editorial in my last report for more infos…
      Cheers, Bill

    I’m sensitive to “P” but have failed to detect it in two different 2011 wines by Confuron-Gindre. Were there fewer bugs in Vosne-R.?
