Appellation: Cotes du Nuits Villages A.C., Bourgogne
Peloton most famously describes a group of cyclists racing individually but working together. The five small villages of the Côte de Nuits – Villages (clustered just to the south and north of Nuits-Saint Georges) act in exactly the same way, combining to create a wine with complexity, elegance and effortless power. Peloton was created by David Duband as vibrant and fruit focussed wines that showcase the purity and structure of Burgundy but are expressive in their youth – a counter-point to his structured and long living estate wines.
- FRA - Burgundy
Cherries, strawberry, spice, beetroot, mint are the main smells and flavours – though it tastes most like red Burgundy, of course. It’s clean and gently grippy with a good thread of acidity and a touch of bitterness – temperate and composed. Perhaps slightly jammy and light, but finishes well and leaves you with a positive impression. Very attractive, if not terribly exciting. Rating 90 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (AUG/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
The nose is fruit-driven displaying lifted red berry fruit with violet highlights.
The palate follows in similar fashion, medium bodied and fruit driven, with a rich depth of ripe fruit, soft tannins and subtle savoury oak. Whilst this wine will gain character over the next few years I would recommend enjoying in its youth.
