Rosé made of Pinot Noir

This rosé wine is quite special. This rosé is made of the Pinot Noir grape, which is mainly used for red wines. In Burgundy a few producers started to produce Pinot Noir Rosé wines after world war One, mainly because the market for reds, usually more expensive, was virtually non-existent after the war. But selling rosé allowed them to stay afloat. This wine possesses fresh acidity also found in the red wines of the region.

As usual in Burgundy, the production is small with roughly 1500 bottles per year. The vineyards for this wine are in the northern part of the Cotes de Nuits, on Jurassic soils with broken stones and limestone grit on a deep clay matrix. The average age of the vines is 35 years, giving the grapes more minerality and structure. After harvest, the grapes are hand-sorted in the winery, 100% destalked and matured in stainless steel tanks, therefore preserving their freshness.

Character of the wine

The wine is tight, so no plummy and sweet summer rosé commonly drank at barbeques or at the beach ; this wine presents itself best between 10 and 12 degrees, but at higher temperatures (12-15 degrees) the typical Pinot Noir red fruit profile comes out. The intensity and warmth develops for a long time in the mouth. The wine can perfectly be paired with dishes such as a summer salad, skewered meats and the traditional side of beef. This is a vinous rosé that doesn't necessarily needs to be consumed very young.
