Jean-Marie Berrux Bourgogne Nondegu 2019
REGION Burgundy, France
GRAPE Pinot Noir
Red Fruit - Fennel - Floral
This is a light body but bursting with flavour Pinot. Notes of red fruit, fennel, cherry and floral notes. Fresh acidity balanced by fruit and fine tannin.
This is a tiny vineyard of very old Pinot Noir vines in Aluze, near Santenay. The vineyard was inherited by friends of Jean-Marie. The vines have only been grown organically for 4 years and are coming back to great vibrancy.
The grapes are harvested by hand and de-stemmed by hand and then put into stainless steel tank for fermentation. The wine received some gentle extraction from occasional pump over, then was aged one year in old oak barrels under the family home in Meursault, followed by a further 6 months en-masse in tank prior to bottling.
There are just 6 barrels of this wine for the world to share.
