Beaune 1er cru "Les Vignes Franches" 1988 - Rebourgeon-Mure
Label: Stained and Torn
Overall condition: Good
It was in the Middle Ages, following the devastation caused by successive wars and the plague that it was decided not to charge winegrowers wishing to work in the vineyard. Hence the name "vignes franches" that means "free vines".
This premier cru, near Pommard, is exposed on a gentle slope towards the east on stony soils. The wines produced there are known and appreciated for their spicy and peppery flavor.
In white as in red, the appellations "Beaune" reach venerable ages without a hitch. This thanks to their great acidity and possibly to the fact that a few bunches of Gamay slipped into the vats (but shhh it's a secret). If you have the chance, try to taste Beaunes from the 40's and 50's you will be surprised.
