This wine is a balanced blend of fruit from Côte d’Or vineyards, including Chorey-les-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses and Beaune appellations. Only 5,000 bottles are produced each year.

Tasting Note

This medium-bodied wine shows red berry aromas and flavors that become spicy and earthy with age. Approachable in its youth, the wine can develop up to five years in bottle.

Food Pairing

When this wine is young, serve it slightly chilled with red meat, or after a couple years of cellaring, serve it with more nuanced dishes such as game or cheese.

Vineyard Details

The Côte d’Or
The Côte d’Or is a narrow, east-facing slope of differing limestone-based soils. At the top and bottom of the slope, the soil quality and aspect are considered second to the elevations in mid-slope, where Premier and Grand Cru vineyards tend to reside at 250 to 300 meters on well-draining limestone soil with an ideal exposure to sunlight. The Côte d’Or is divided into two main regions, the Côte de Nuits in the north, known for producing world-class red wines from Pinot Noir, and the Côte de Beaune, in the south, best known for white wines from Chardonnay, but producing its share of reds as well.

About the Grape

Pinot Noir
In France, makes a silky, deceptively powerful wine of elegant, complex aromas and subtle, red fruit flavors, with earthy, floral, mushroom and mineral notes. In California, shows ripe, sweet characters.
