a pair of 2012 grèves – white ones!


Two short notes, just to remind myself what these tasted like on Saturday evening…

2012 Le Grappin, Beaune 1er Les Grèves Blanc
Round, comely aromas, reasonably fresh and very inviting. In the mouth this has a lovely balance and a faint richness. Good density and concentration. Tasty wine – don’t let it get too warm in the glass or becomes less fine. Very enjoyable wine!
Rebuy – Yes

2012 Louis Latour, Beaune 1er Les Grèves Blanc
A very different nose that’s a little fresher, more direct and more floral too. In the mouth it’s a similar story: It’s direct and fresh but with a lovely intensity. Less rich than the previous wine, but that’s no negative. Just a faint oaky vanilla component to the flavour – but it’s a baby. Lovely…
Rebuy – Yes

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

    Well I’ve had the Le Grappin a few times and have to agree, most inviting
