The Burgaud 2011 Beaujolais-Villages Les Vignes de Thulon exhibits aromas of ripe cassis tinged with smoky black tea, piquant huckleberry, smoked meat, and toasted caraway. (It’s almost as though there were a dosage of Gewurztraminer.) Exuberant and invigorating in its tart freshness, I could easily have imagined a young 2010 before me. A saliva-inducing lick of salt and even the wine’s bit of textural graininess that lightly catches in the throat add to the appealing stimulation of an energetic, generously juicy finish. Once again, this is among the most successful wines of its ubiquitous appellation, not to mention a fine value. Enjoy it by late 2014.
Jean-Marc Burgaud’s ostensibly top 2011s had rested, assembled for six weeks in tank, when I tasted them in December and were due to have been bottled just before year’s end. His “regular” Cote de Py was bottled in mid-June and the wines leading up to it in his pecking-order in mid-April. As usual, Burgaud favored picking late relative to his colleagues, in this case among other things to permit ample fermentative extraction from whole clusters – one pump-over per day over 10-15 days for the Morgons – while retaining a flattering texture and balanced tannins without under-ripe stem components. As a group, these 2011s – whose natural alcohols hovered around 13% – are possessed of brightness and vivacity in significant excess of vintage norms, which is certainly fine by this taster. Burgaud pointed out to me that his rental contracts call for sharing the young wine, and that is the reason why he cannot, as a matter of practicality (however tempting it would otherwise be) experiment with the completion of alcoholic fermentation in barrel, but instead needs to let it run its course in tank whence the volume can be divided evenly between him and his partners. I re-tasted from bottle the top Burgaud 2010s alongside his 2011s and have offered below brief parenthetic commentary on their performance relative to my notes and ratings in Issue 196. (For further commentary on Burgaud’s sites, methods, and resultant wines, consult my Issue 190 report.)" 89 point
