    Region: AOC Bourgogne, France

    Wine very marked by red fruits, with predominant blackcurrant notes. On the palate, we find red berries and a beautiful aromatic persistence. An entry-level wine of the highest standard, which puts many nominally superior Villages wines in the shade

    This Bourgogne pinot noir comes from 3 parcels at the extremity of Savigny, both on the hill & in the plain areas. The winemaking process is traditional: the grapes are de-stemmed, crushed, cold-macerated for a few days then trodden down on a daily basis. The process of fermentation is carried out naturally at low temperatures. After a period of 2 weeks in vats, the wines are brought to the cellar and aged for over 18 months. Unfined & unfiltered.

  • Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name is derived from the French words for pine and black. The word pine alludes to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler climates. Pinot noir is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. The grape's tendency to produce tightly packed clusters makes it susceptible to several viticultural hazards involving rot that require diligent canopy management.

    The thin-skins and low levels of phenolic compounds lends pinot to producing mostly lightly colored, medium bodied and low tannin wines that can often go through phases of uneven and unpredictable aging. When young, wines made from pinot noir tend to have red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. As the wine ages, pinot has the potential to develop more vegetal and "barnyard" aromas that can contribute to the complexity of the wine.

  • Pinot Noir is an amazing food wine. Pair with:

    • Beef dishes

    • Roasted Chicken
