Serious Burgundy Value:
2016 Jouan Coteaux Bourguignons

Posted by Ian McFadden

Jouan has quickly become one of our favorite producers in all of Burgundy.

Today, we focus on the Coteaux Bourguignons, the bottle that stands out as the most delicious, value-laden wine of the range.

It's a wine that the entire staff drinks with abandon. The amount of fascination and sheer gulpability that it offers is incredibly compelling.

The 2016 is a particularly delicious example. The vintage's concentration and mineral tones are a near perfect combination. It is the wine's levity and refreshment that makes it so joyous.

Jouan’s wines are, above all else, about purity. Across the entire range, they thrive on subtlety and finesse. There’s a quiet, pensiveness to the wines that I really love.

The Coteaux Bourguignons is all Pinot Noir and boasts a dark-fruited profile with a silky mouthfeel. We’re always taken by this bottle’s feeling of honesty and immediacy and, at the same time, refinement. There are wonderful aromatics of earth, game and high-toned floral notes.

This represents one of the most beguiling expressions of inexpensive Burgundy that we know. We created special 6-pack pricing, because this is something that you'll want around in quantity.
