This 2012 Piron is a tasty elixir of luscious red berries, savory mocha ,and sweet herb flavors plus hints of smoke, all enveloped in well-integrated oak and Merlot’s trademark rounded tannins.
Jean-Marc Burgaud is based in Villie-Morgon, in the heart of the most celebrated of the crus. He began working here in 1989, when he had a hectare each in Beaujolais Villages, Regine and Morgon. .Burgaud’s wines are quite structured and yet they avoid being overpowering or too extracted. He works in quite a reductive way which sets up the wines nicely for some ageing.
