Winemaker Notes: 100% Pinot Noir from 40-45 year old vines. Grapes are vinified traditionally in cuve for anywhere between 10-15 days, depending on cuvée and vintage, wines age in fûts (20-30% of which are new) for up to 18 months before bottling.
Taste: The pretty nose smells fabulously of Pinot Noir- dark cherry and purple flowers. The palate has good, juicy flesh to it, and the tannin/acid balance well. Even in Burgundy you rarely find such an elegant balance & texture in the mouth that exhibits cherry & spice.
From Madeline Triffon MS - "Here’ a gorgeous French Pinot Noir, delicious and affordable! The just-released 2020 vintage of this beautiful estate-bottled red is an eye-opener: deep in color and flavor, with very rich plummy fruit, and signature scents of ripe strawberry and clove spice. Smooth, delish and enticingly fragrant - put a little chill on it, an hour in the fridge, and it will taste even more yummy to everyone at the table. Bring on the sage dressing and gravy! Damien Gachot’s estate is based in Nuits-Saint-Georges, and his wines were endorsed to Importer Kermit Lynch by none other than a Burgundy master, Aubert de Villaine, co-owner of Domaine de la Romanee Conti."
Jasper Morris - 91pts - "The heart of the domaine. Clear bright crimson purple, the fruit wins over the oak here though here Very linear every year and I can certainly see the backbone. Damien notes that this vineyard always gets dark cherry fruit, cherry stones even, with never a false note. Excellent finish, I must agree."
