“Burgundy has many different faces and at Maison Louis Jadot our job is to allow our wines to express its subtle differences.”
The production area for this wine is the whole of Burgundy. The Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir comes from a balanced blend of Côte d'Or, Saône et Loire (Mercurey, Buxy) and Irancy. Côte de Nuits, Saône et Loire and Irancy will bring deep tannins while Côte de Beaune will bring more fruitiness.
The wine is fermented and aged partly in vats and partly in barrels during 9 to 12 months before bottling.
It offers a colour of medium intensity, purplish in its youth changing to ruby and then garnet, after several years in bottle. It is harmonious and balanced, with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offset by round, gentle tannins in a wine of medium body and elegant structure. The very typical, fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a deliciously lingering finish.
