The 2016 Beaune Grèves ler Cru has tightly packed blackberry and raspberry fruit on the nose. The new oak is a little more evident than its peers and yet nicely controlled and defined. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. The fruit profile appears to become blacker towards the final third, grippy with a touch of salinity enlivening the slightly tinny finish. A little brutish in its youth and yet it will surely come around with adequate bottle age. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy.
