Antoine Lienhardt Cote de Nuits-Villages 'Emphase', Burgundy, 2020

5 in stock

Antoine’s top wine comes from old vines (70-85yo) from all seven of his terroirs within Comblanchien (principally Plantes au Bois, Essards and Aux Vignottes). The soils are a mix of clay, limestone and sand, stony in places, both from hillside vineyards and on the flat. Made from whole bunches it was given a 10-month élevage in one third cement egg and two thirds older 228 and 500ltr barrels. It has a slightly deeper colour than his other Cote de Nuits-Villages wine, Les Plantes Aux Bois, gorgeous sour cherry fruit with floral almost potpourri hints. There’s real energy and power to the wine, a good mineral vibration, and supple, ripe tannins.
