2018 Antipodes Sangiovese
This is from the second vintage of the antipodean project of remarkable Burgundian winemaker Jean-Jacques Morel. Having always been gentle, intuitive winemaker, this is J.J. breaking away from the strict dogma of the French appellation system to make the kind of wines that would never be allowed back in his home of Saint-Aubin.
J.J gets so much from the fruit in this cuvée an amazing balance of dark fruit and fine tannins backed with delicate notes of cinnamon malt. Its’ another one of his wines you can’t miss.
