100% Pinot Noir

Cotê de Beaune, Burgundy, France 

Clay + Limestone Soil

From a 0.8223 hectare parcel, this wine is a tribute to Armande Douhairet, whom everyone called the "Mademoiselle". The grapes are pulled from several parcels around the Monthélie appellation, including the Les Plantes and Les Longénes lieux-dits.

Grapes are manually harvested and carefully sorted. 100% destemmed, fermented in stainless steel for 12 to 20 days with daily pump over and punch down. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels (Tronçais), 10% new for 18 to 20 months, depends on the vintage.

The Côte de Beaune village of Monthelie is tucked into a little valley adjacent to Meursault and features vineyards which almost entirely face south.

This Pinot Noir balances ripeness and cherry-fruited intensity while remaining quite elegant.
