Beaune Greves sits on the middle of the hillside overlooking the capital of Burgundy and has been treasured since Roman times. The sandy, gravelly soils here lend the wines a tension, minerality andamp; longevity that sets Greves apart. The fruit for Dominique's bottling comes from three different parcels across the top, mid andamp; lower slopes of the vineyard. The de Montille andamp; Lafarge families have long been close friends of his, and Dominique was surely influenced by their track records of success with this special site. His '17 certainly hits with the same level of purity and intensity that you find in their benchmark versions. This is a captivating drink, with beams of red fruit that permeate the glass on first pour. The wine shows depth andamp; substance to burn for the cellar, but the tannins are admirably fine and the saline acidity so seamlessly integrated that it's completely beguiling already. It's a clear demonstration of Dominique's talent and a perfect way to experience this special terroir through the lens of a legendary Burgundy producer without spending hundreds of dollars.andnbsp;
