Melon de Bourgogne. Sustainable, Organic, Biodynamic.
Notes from importer, Polaner Selections:
Domaine de l’Écu’s 2018 Granite bouquet offers up a classic mix of bread fruit, briny oceanic tones, a marvelous base of wet stone minerality, a touch of straw and a lovely dollop of leesy nuttiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a fine core, excellent mineral drive, perfectly respectable acids for the relative near-term and a long, focused and classy finish. Again, this is a 2018 that will not make old bones, but will deliver plenty of pleasure while at its peak. 2018-2030.
