Heresztyn Manzini Clos St Denis Grand Cru 2016

189.00

From a class of producers offering more contemporary and muscular interpretations of red Burgundy, husband and wife team Simon Mazzini and Florence Heresztyn serve up a range of 2016 wines that are impressive. Extended cold maceration and generous use of whole clusters, result in dark colors and complex, dense wines that will require patience. From the higher up Clos St. Denis section of Calouère, this wine is richly layered with dark cherry, rose pedal, lavender, black tea and a mineral edge on the long, lingering finish. While equally structured at the Millandes from the same domaine, the tannins are noticeably finer. Still, it would be a shame to think of touching this bottle anytime shy of its 10th birthday, and even that would probably be for those short of patience. Power and finesse built for the long term cellaring.
