Regis Bouvier Bourgogne en Montre Cul 2013
Bouvier’s vineyards in Marsannay are premier-cru quality (some may even get classified) and his lieu-dit Bourgogne Rouge En Montre Cul vineyard is of a quality well above most (cultivated on a steep slope, not flatland Bourgogne). Elegant and supple in texture, with cherry, raspberry and spice flavors. Grapes for this wine come from a hilly vineyard called "Montre en Cul," (1.8 hectares) with vines averaging 50 years of age. The name of the vineyard means "showing your rear" because the slope is so steep that when workers tend the vines, they have no choice but to look at the behinds of those above. Cultivation is "lutte raisonee," or reasonable agriculture (sustainable). A Kermit Lynch wine.
