Brief description: The Bourgogne Passetoutgrain 2018 is a traditional blend of 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Gamay, with the two cépages harvested and vinified separately before blending. Elevage is all in a steel tank and the fruit comes from three plots in Morey-Saint-Denis. Light, fresh and easy to drink, as expected from a pleasant Passetoutgrain.
Alcoholic content: 12.9% vol.

Tasting score 87 by by Peter Richards MW “Gamay can deliver summer in a glass and, while Beaujolais was surprisingly scarce on the ground in this tasting, this classic Passetoutgrain is an engaging, ambitious blend of half Gamay half Pinot Noir. Tons of tangy red fruit, a firm tannic profile - very grown up and food-friendly
