Pinot Noir, Terres de Famille

Pinot Noir, Terres de Famille bottle

Pinot Noir is a blue-blooded vine, a truly aristocratic variety. The finest of all red varieties, it can truly dazzle the taste buds. First described in 1375, it has always remained intimately linked with the history of Burgundy. Its grapes give birth to the true soul of Burgundy, and only here is it at its best. Being delicate and complex grape, it is difficult to export. In the words of Jancis Robinson, “No one has come up with a Pinot Noir that could compare with Burgundy”.

Pinot Noir in all its ardour and delicacy, its spirit and sensitivity, its authenticity... with parcels at Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, a stone’s throw from the Clos de Vougeot and our Vougeot wines, combined with a rustic hint of Côte de Beaune. Vougeot was where the Cistercian monks kept their wine. Our Bourgogne Terres de Famille is a combination from several of our parcels, in accordance with strict appellation d’origine contrôlée rules, to arouse the excellence of Pinot Noir. Montée Rouge, for example, is one of the best Beaune climats.
