I finally got around to trying this. Becker is generally considered one of the better producers of Spätburgunder (and why isn't this labelled so? why the French name?) but this particular wine hasn't received universal praise. Some have called it thin, others have called it unbalanced with excess acidity, still others have commented on a disconnection between the aromas and the tastes.
I don't know what these people have been drinking! I thought it simply smelled of Pinosity bright and pure. It gladly isn't an oversized example of the grape and is very moreish with attractive structure (not harsh or excessive acidity in any way!). Will this knock DRC off its pedestal? Hell no! Will I be buying this again? Hell yes! It's a pure and good Pinot and affordable at under 20€. Quite frankly, having tasted some of Becker's more ambitious Pinots, I enjoyed this one more because there is no hint of oak taint. There's just pure Pinosity. And that is always nice.
