Tasting
Story

A blend of Pinot Noir from Côte Chalonnaise, coming from villages of Moroges and Mercurey.

Terroir

Limestone clay.

Vines

20 to 40 years old vines of Pinot Noir. 

Early manual harvesting in 20 kgs baskets. 100 % destemmed then selection on sorting table. Short pellicular maceration to alcoholic fermentation with natural yeast. Daily light pumping-over. 

10 months of ageing, 40 % in traditional pièces bourguignonnes, 25% of new oak (3 new barrels). Rest of the wine is aged in a large foudre. Bottling July 2019.

Typical nose of Pinot Noir, with a great balance between red fruit flavors and vegetal notes of black-berry bush and laurel. Red Bourgogne is geared towards being enjoyed in its youth with a couple of years of bottle ageing.    

Drink

2019 - 2021

Jeanne la Folle, Joanna the Mad, Juana la Loca, Johanna die Wahnsinnige : anyone can give a name to Jeanne Ist of Castile, duchesse de Bourgogne. And take over the insane destiny of her novel character, whose everlasting love leads her to madness. But was she really foolish or is she rather the embodiment of man folly ?
