Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise rouge - Tête de cuvée
The grapevines are located between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National and are grown generally midway up the hillsides. The soil is very shallow and ventilated. The heavily pebbled earth is ideal for the Pinot Noir. The Bourgogne Cote Chalonnaise tête de cuvée is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape.
These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high limestone content on the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the east and southeast.
In oak casks and barrels for 36 months. This vat is unfiltered.
Deep purple colour and a powerful nose with aromas of morello cherry and leather. This wine is full-bodied and persistent in the mouth, with very harmonious tannin and a very fine balance. A powerful and elegant wine.
As a general rule, flavourful and strong meats, such as game or lamb go well with this wine, as do strong cheeses (Epoisses, Chambertin, Langres…)
Best consumed five or six years after its harvest
