Côte de Nuits-Villages
Grapes for the Côte de Nuits Villages are grown in the commune of Corgoloin on three different plots: "En Fontenelle", "Le Clos de Magny", and "La Montagne".
South / Southeast facing
Brown, some limestone, gently sloping
Pinot Noir, average age 50 years, Guyot trained
10 000 vines / hectare on low trellising
Harvested by hand and at maturity, the grapes are then sorted, 100% destemmed and put in vats. The wines are cooled to around 10°C. The vatting lasts between 20 and 25 days with alternating punching down and pumping over according to the tastings. After devatting, pressing and settling, the wine is barreled for its malolactic fermentation before starting to age for about 18 to 24 months. A single racking and no filtration before bottling.
30% in new barrels maximum followed by a massing of 4 to 6 months.
Average 6 300 bottles per annum
75cl bottles. For larger sizes contact the Domaine at the beginning of the year.
Fully ripe wild berries with a spicy undertone, slightly roasted from the ageing which also brings out a complex bouquet of red flower floral notes.
Fruit forward at the beginning with a balanced tannic structure showing later. Fresh and consistently aromatic finish.
Open 5-10 minutes before tasting. Ideally served in Burgundy glasses.
