Burgundy is a long and complex strip of regions, sub-regions, villages and vineyards stretching from Dijon in the north to Macon in the south. It producers, along with perhaps one or two other regions, the most sought after wines in the word sometimes selling for tens of thousands of pounds. But for a few exceptions the reds are Pinot Noir and the whites are Chardonnay, but it is the micro-climate, soils and winemaking that makes the wine so interesting, unique and varied in style and quality. It is the most terroir driven region of France and with its continental climate that varies much from year to year, vintage variation in the wines is everything.

Organic farming. Certification in 2022. Hand picked in small baskets and manually selected. Gentle pneumatic pressing, followed by semi-carbonic maceration in concrete tanks for 10 days (no added carbon dioxide) using whole bunches. No filtering or fining following bottle ageing.

Tasting note: After a good decant there are strong red berry aromas coming through. Mostly a red, slightly tart raspberry and cherry. The oak imparts a touch of cedar and smoke. And the tannins are relatively light but chalky and will develop and progress over the next 3-5 years.
Winemaking Detail: Grapes are hand-harvested then carefully selected at the winery. Spontaneous fermentation with wild native yeasts. Each fermented in small 3500 kg deposits and duration is 15-20 days. Fermenting at initial temperatures of 15-16º C and increase progressively until reaching a max of 32º C in order to extract well and allow for better and longer ageing.
