Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Pinot Noir - Clos de Chenoves
Soil composed mostly of clay, limestone, and shale, on heavily pebbled ground. This wine is made from the Pinot Noir grape.
The Clos de Chenôves is one of the oldest vineyards in Burgundy. Today, its production is entirely based in the cellars of the Winemakers of Buxy. The vineyards of the Clos de Chenôves cover 11.57 hectares, of which 3.22 hectares are cultivated with Chardonnay grapes. The vines are located mostly midway up the slopes.
The wine is aged first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barrels or casks.
Clos de Chenôves Red Burgundy has a fairly deep intense colour, which turns ruby with age. The nose has hints of vanilla blending in with the aromas of cherry and red fruits which are typical of Pinot Noir. It remains well balanced, soft and round in the mouth on wellbalanced tannin.
This wine goes amazingly well with grilled red meets, stewed dishes such as beef Bourguignon or eggs en meurette, or even with game.
It is also an excellent accompaniment for a cheese platter consisting of Délice de Bourgogne, Bleu d’Auvergne and a cheese from l’Abbaye de Cîteaux.
Best consumed four or five years after its harvest Serving temperature between 16 and 18°C.
