Last but definitely not least: The Wine Itself

2019 Les Heritiers Les Prarons comes from Santenay, the last appellation south of the Cote de Beaune. The specific area is known as the “Prarons”, which produces soft wines that are rather fleshy. This Pinot Noir comes from 50-year-old vines. James Suckling awarded this “impressive wine” a 92pt review. He described it as “precisely balanced with ripe red-berry aromas with well-crafted fine tannins and subtle rooty character. This is already forming a very satisfying whole, the balance of the long, delicately savory finish spot-on.
