Beautiful Pinot Noir by Vincent Thomas. More stones and minerals in the soil here, in Northern Burgundy, so this Pinot has a bit more spice, acidity and fresh dark fruit such as blackberries. Very tasty!
Domaine de la Chappe is located in Tonnerre, Northern Burgundy and near Chablis. Vincent took over, planted his father's vineyards in 2003 in the 1980s, when the vineyards in the Tonnerre region were brought back to life by him after the phylloxera. Vincent processes the vineyards purely organically and works with a hands-off mentality in the cellar, so no intervention! The wines are always energetic, mineral and special.
Funky level: ***
