The Frederic Esmonin Les Genevrieres glows light red in the glass, yielding aromas of tart cranberry, ripe strawberry, and hints of brown spices. On the palate, soft cherry fruit eases into fleshed-out raspberry elements. The finish is bright and elongated, tying together a very charming, easy-to-drink Burgundy. Based in Gevrey-Chambertin, Frederic Esmonin is an under-the-radar vigneron who deserves full attention from Pinot lovers of all stripes. Plus, at 12% alcohol this wine shines with acidity and minerality.
