Beaune 1er Cru, Cuvee Brunet 2020
160th Hospices De Beaune Wine Auction on the 13th December 2020
Hospices de Beaune is well provided in wines from Beaune itself: 10 different 1er cru cuvées delivering all the nuances of style that Beaune can offer. The tasting notes below will indicate the varying styles from one cuvée to another. Cuvée Cyrot-Chaudron and Cuvée Rousseau Deslandes might suit those seeking a wine which will be accessible earlier, whereas Cuvée Floquet or Cuvée Nicolas Rolin are for the long term.
After the powerful purple-black colour, the bouquet of Cuvée Brunet offers an inky concentration of dark red fruit, suggestive of boysenberries. Medium-bodied on the palate, the finish is defined more by a balanced acidity along with some ripe tannins. This is an attractive Beaune to drink in 8 to 12 years time.
