Balancin, Domaine de Thalie
Region: Burgundy, France
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Wine type: Red
About: Made by Peter Gierszewki, a first generation Burgundian of Polish parents who started this small 4.5 ha estate in 2009 with a view to push the limits of natural farming in his parcels, an ethos he also brings into the cellar. Beautiful naturally made Burgundy wines but with a very strong sense of belonging.
Complex red fruits, but with a really distinct earthy and darker edge than some of the super fruit-forward Pinots from this region. Gorgeous depth and balance, with a soft structure that keeps it together and will ensure a long life ahead should you choose to cellar it, although it's ready to drink now.
