2019 Bass Phillip 17K Pinot Noir

Bass Phillip was founded by Mr Phillip Jones in 1979 at the age of 32. He told us, years ago, that he had planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the early days because his favourite wine was a classified growth Bordeaux and he wanted to replicate it. Fortunately, or unfortunately, not a single grape was grown. He then decided to replace the Cabernet Sauvignon with Pinot Noir and what a fantastic decision he made!

Bass Phillip has been organically farmed since 1993, and biodynamic since 2002. Today, the estate is run by Jean-Marie Fourrier, a very talented Burgundian winemaker that has done an internship with the legendary Henri Jayer. Henri was a French vintner who, it is said, revolutionised Viticulture and winemaking in Burgundy.

 

Why do we like it?

We love all of the Bass Philip range, and their '17K', 'Estate' and 'Premium' offerings are each incredibly different. It is for that reason, we have chosen to include this bottle in our selection for you.  It is created with the same attention to detail, the same winemaking and this wine offers a very good entry into Bass Phillip wines. It is not as complex as its bigger "brothers", but it will certainly have you enjoying every sip of it.
