Jasper Morris 90-93
Bright mid crimson. There is additional density here on the palate, noticeable in the front of the mouth but continuing through to the well-integrated tannins behind. The bouquet will need to follow in due course, which it will to confirm another fine Clos des Ursules.

The 2021 Beaune Clos des Ursules 1er Cru has a lovely, floral bouquet with wilted rose petals infusing the vivacious red berry fruit. Always a classy number, even in a tough vintage like 2021. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins. It’s very lithe and smooth, with tart red berry fruit and a judicious dash of spice towards the finish. Lovely.
