Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Les Ursulines

Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Les Ursulines bottle

Pinot Noir is invariably associated with Burgundy – and indeed, it is here that it finds the conditions most conducive to its ideal development.

This wine has the most noble pedigree imaginable, coming as it does from the Côte de Nuits. This Pinot Noir has been selected from old vines with a range of carefully-specified characteristics: controlled yields with drastic debudding, cluster thinning if necessary, soil work, little or no use of fertilizer, and vine protection in a way that is friendly to the environment and surrounding wildlife. Parcel-based selection and vineyard management.
