Terres de Famille

Pinot Noir
Description

These large and magnificent vines with their curving rows profit from the sweeping winds of the plateau and are ideal for the organic cultivation of our Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. The grapes grown here are also used as the majority contributor to our Bourgogne Chardonnay Tete de Famille. We are allowed to add certain declassified village wines to the blend for a carefully crafted final cuvée, with a precise, mineral, and fruity wine with a smooth patina from the larger barrels used to age it.

This wine will not be available to ship until Late March / Early April, 2021.

Please note that this is an imported wine and cannot legally be shipped to  GA, IA, IL, IN, LA, ME, MI, MO, MT, SD, VA or WV.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Deep red

The nose exudes powerful aromas of small red fruits, as well as a predominant blackcurrant note. There are also some smoky and vanilla notes.

Palate: 

On the palate, this very elegant wine reveals melted tannins.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Like a family reunion, this wine brings together the members of one single line of descent, and one single Cistercian terroir. The varietal – Pinot Noir – has been grown here for almost 700 years. One-third of the grapes comes from our vines on the Côte de Nuits, and two-thirds from the Côte de Beaune – divine proportions for a divine wine.
