Bertrand Delespierre Saignee des Terres Amoureuses 2014
Blood red with a fabulously juicy front end. Apples, loganberry and spice on the palate. Amazing balance for such a rich wine with this brilliant salinity on the finish. A proper explosion of a wine. It will work fabulously with cured meats.
Formed in 1980 by Chantal Delespierre and Didier Bertrand it is now run by their children; Clemence and Adrien. We totally fell in love with their wines when we visited in 2017 and have returned every year since. They work with 10 hectares in Chamery, Ecueil, Villedommange and Montre creating distinctive wines with impeccable structure and finesse.
