Traditional Burgundian vinification took place with minimal intervention. 70% of the grapes were vinified as whole clusters adding complexity. Fermentation took place with natural yeasts and without any ‘pigeage’ or punching down of the cap. The wine was 100% barrel aged for 12 months, in a combination of oak barrels. One third was aged in new oak, one third in one year old oak and one third in two year old oak. The wine then rested for a further six months in tank, prior to being bottled, without fining or filtration.

A beautifully perfumed and delicate Pinot Noir, with fine red fruit tones, a touch of black pepper and a silky texture. Smooth, long and elegant on the finish, classic red Burgundy

Winery

The grapes come from the single vineyard plot of ‘Beaurepaire’, which is situated at the highest elevation of all the Premier Crus in Santenay. This east facing site has a unique microclimate and it produces a very elegant style of wine from limestone and clay soils. The vineyard is managed with respect for the unique attributes of each site’s terroir and is farmed sustainably and organically, although it is not certified. Some biodynamic philosophies are also followed. The grapes are hand-picked and carefully sorted prior to vinification.
