Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Justerini & Brooks, Justerini & Brooks, Barolo, 2020

The 2020 comes from four vineyards in three communes: 30% Rive (La Morra), 30% Scarrone (Castiglione Falletto) from the middle part of sub-plot Rocche Rivera (the higher part goes to the MGA), 20% Baudana (Serralunga) and 20% Broglio (Serralunga). The vineyards are vinified and aged separately for two years in large French oak casks and blended after 24 months. The licorice of Serralunga feels very present this year, bringing a virile, ferrous feel to the bouquet. Complex and intense on the palate, rich in tannin and structure. Camphor and blood orange and star anise are some of the flavours that jostle around. One of the more cloistered 2020s we tasted, it will benefit from a few more years in bottle.

The design and selection of our House range is quite literally, an ongoing project. Tastings are numerous and rigorous; our aim is to find wines that we believe are both representative of their origins and that have an extra quality over and above our competitors' equivalents. Wines that do not continue to produce the quality we expect we de-list. Our current house list represents a selection of old favourites, 61 Reserve Claret, Pomerol, Sarcey and 250th Cuvee Champagnes and Directors Tawny. Alongside these is our newest label, our House Red Burgundy which has been praised time and again by clients and press alike. It is a real filip to our range and now comes from one of the great names in the Côte-de-Nuits. With grapes from in-and-around the villages of Vosne and Nuits it is utterly pure and refined red burgundy at a price that simply cannot be beaten.
