Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise - Dom. des Pierres Blanches
These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high limestone content of the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the east and southeast. This wine is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape. The region of Pierres Blanches is one of the jewels of the Cellars of the Winemakers of Buxy. Located at Saint Boil, in the village of Etiveau, it has been cultivated for five generations by a family that works hard to maintain its output. The appellation Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Rouge is produced from 3 hectares of grapevines cultivated on calcareous hillsides. The average age of the grapevines is 20 years old.
The wine is aged first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barrels or casks. How long the wine is aged in casks depends on the vintage.
Deep purple-red colour and a powerful, complex nose, with dominant aromas of violet, morello cherry and gingerbread. Full-bodied and persistent in the mouth, presenting a very fine balance. The small, elegant tannins make it very rounded.
Meats cooked in sauce or grilled, such as a choice charolais filet, a burgundy fondue and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Coulommiers…). With several years aging, it can be an excellent accompaniment to lamb, duck, and game.
Best consumed five or six years after its harvest. Serving temperature between 16 and 18°C.
Available in bottle.
