One of the young rising starts of Burgundy, Maxime Cheurlin took over the running of the estate from his grandfather. With only a small parcel of 5.5. hectares of sought after terroir at his disposal, Maxim has been able to produce wines of elegance and class with the Beaune 1er cru Tuvilains being another text-book example. The palate is grippy showing an abundance of fragrant dark red berry fruits; red cherry, blackcurrant and cassis, alongside graphite and forest floor notes on the finish. This will undoubtedly improve with further cellaring. Pair with confit of duck or a leg of lamb.
“There is a lovely sense of freshness and punch to the attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a driving and firm if mildly rustic finish. This focused effort will need a few years to soften at least some of the tannic structure.” – 89-91 Pts, Burghound.
