AEGERTER

  • Jean-Luc et Paul Aegerter, Les Petits Vallons 2015 Mâcon-Villages

    Fermented in new 500-litre barrels and then aged 6-12 months in two-year-old barrels.
    Straightforward with a slight sour freshness on the finish and plenty of cedary fruit flavour. (JH)

  • Jean-Luc et Paul Aegerter 2015 Pernand-Vergelesses

    Fermented in new 500-litre barrels and then aged 6-12 months in two-year-old barrels.
    Definite oaky aroma – creamy, mealy spice. On the palate, the oak is quite present too but balanced by bright lemon fruit. Simple but satisfying. (JH)

  • Jean-Luc et Paul Aegerter, Les Opales 2015 Chablis

    Fermented in new 500-litre barrels and then aged 6-12 months in used barrels.
    Inviting dusty, lemon aroma. This is much better than any of the Aegerter reds I have just tasted. Clean-cut, bone dry, with just a slight chalky grip. The texture and the freshness giving length. (JH)

  • Jean-Luc et Paul Aegerter 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin

    Malo and 8-12 months’ ageing in barrel.
    Deep cherry colour. Intense, dark-red fruit with both fruit and oak sweetness on the nose, a hint of vanilla. Firmly textured, with chalky tannins but with the just enough fruit to balance. Fresh and youthful but a bit drying on the finish. (JH)
