“German Pinot Noir at its best here. It has that lightness of touch you get from a cooler climate, but with all the complex spice, fruit and cherry Bakewell you could wish for. Tannins are smooth as an otter's pocket. Yup, we like this. A lot.”
“Big, bold, fruity, spicy and developed with silky tannins and balancing acidity. This Pinot is not for the faint of heart. Bloody lovely.”
“Big Burgundian pinot with all the old school trimmings thrown in. The smell of a farm on yonder hill, dark cherry, posh smoked bacon, coffee and pepper. A really giving and deliciously decadent wine.”
Burgundy, Côte Chalonnaise
Fruity, Laid back, Savoury
Aromatic and Herbal Flavours
MEET THE PRODUCERS
Hélène Jaeger-Defaix manages this estate in the same spirit as their vineyards and estate in Chablis.
Farming organically, the vines have an average age of at least 35 years. When the hand-picked grapes arrive the pressing is gentle and slow to extract the best juice. Post-fermentation the wine is aged for a further 18 months in oak barrels of 1 to 5 years old with moderate “batonnage” to enhance the elegance of the wine.
Winter and summer ploughing to arate the soil and bury weeds.
Minimal use of sprays, with only sulphur and copper being used if necessary.
