Domaine Alain Michelot is making some old school Burgundies … many of them are in my view excessively tannic and require decades of cellaring to reach a reasonable level of drinkability. The 2012 NSG Richemone however seem to be an exception. In the nose deep red and dark berry fruit with a lovely refined minerality. On the palate layers of pure and ripe fruit …focused with a suitable grip from the ripe tannins. Really like the filigree complexity and the lovely sweet red fruit notes on the midpalate. A delightful and slightly overlooked terroir.
