Marius Delarche, Pernand-Vergelesses “Les Boutières” Vieilles Vignes Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France 2018 (750mL)
If you crave authentic red Burgundy that can be consumed now without bringing up “infanticide,” Delarche’s Boutière is one of the shrewdest purchases you can make. That said, the pedigree and structure racing throughout this bottle will allow it to evolve gracefully over the next 5-8 years—easily! And as it tacks on age and complexity, so will your infatuation with it every time you pull the cork. That’s a true rarity in Burgundy: Finding resolutely classic Pinot Noir that will impress both now and later! In the glass, this wine is sheer, unadulterated pleasure: It explodes with ripe black raspberry, dusty cherry, juicy plums, licorice, a hint of smoke and spice, crushed earth, wet stones, pomegranate seeds, forest floor, damp rose petals, and candied violet. The palate is unabashedly plush with a noticeably firm mineral grip that steers you directly into elite Burgundy.
