A modern Pinot Noir that is both affordable and possesses all of the finesse and complexity that are associated with the Burgundian grape that it is named after. A blend that showcases our experience in vinification, blending, and understanding of Burgundy’s many terroirs by combining the qualities of harmony, freshness, and fruit in a single bottle.
The Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits both provide more than eighty percent of the grapes that go into making this cuvée. The rest of the wines originate from the Couchois region, which is located in the northwest corner of the Côte Chalonnaise and is prized for the freshness of its wines. A little amount of Pinot Noir from the Beaujolais region was added to the final blend as a complementary component due to the color and fruit it contributed.
The vast majority of the grapes are harvested by hand, and after they have arrived at the winery, they are sorted. In order to amplify the fresh fruit’s inherent smells and flavors, a brief period of cold pre-fermentation maceration is performed before the fruit is used. In order to provide structure and complexity, one half of the cuvée is matured in oak barrels. The remaining half is stored in tanks to maintain its freshness and fruitiness. The finished product carries the hallmark of their house.
Absolutely stunning shade of red. On the nose, there are scents of cherry and redcurrant jelly, followed by aromas of baked goods. The nose is expressive, and it has a fresh and crisp quality (blueberry tart and marzipan). A start on the palate that is both remarkably fresh and round, and has superb balance. Beautiful structure with excellent length and extremely well-integrated, delicate aromas of wood and spices (cumin) that come from the barrel aging. This beautiful example of the typical characteristics of Pinot Noir is characterized by a high level of complexity as well as a vibrant freshness.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
