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.

Jane et Sylvain is a tiny winery based in and around the prestigious Cote-de-Nuits village of Gevrey-Chambertin. The charming owners (no prizes for guessing their names) took on the tiny domaine in 1993 having acquired 1.9 hectares of Jane’s family land. The winery “Jane et Sylvain” was officially created in 1999 and since 2003 has been certified organic. They make both village and 1er Cru wines, always using native yeasts and old barriques, while varying the extraction and maceration according to what each vintage brings with the resulting wine an expression of beauty and purity. Presently the domaine covers just over 4.3 hectares.

Tasting note: A beautiful; elegant and rich nose of firm raspberries; ripe sweet cherry and a hint of dry (even bitter) chocolate. The pallet is precise and tense; with firm acidity and fine grainy tannins running through. Elegant with sufficient texture and weight; red berries and bramble give way to a fresh; bright acidity on the finish.
Winemaking Detail: 25 year old vines certified organic since 2003. 50% destemmed and fermented with their natural yeasts and on their skins. Aged on their fine less for 12 months. Little sulphur added at bottling
