From: Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Aromas of red and black fruits, earthy nuances, and light notes of pepper. Medium-bodied and structured with ripe tannins. There’s a Vosne aromatic energy here, with a heady core of Nuits fruit and soul.
This cuvée is a blended selection from the ‘Les Herbues’ and ‘Les Tuyaux’ vineyards, both with limestone and clay soils on the Vosne side of the village. ‘Herbues’ was planted in the late 1950s and ‘Tuyaux’ in 1949/1950. Grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented on indigenous yeasts in steel tank. The wine then aged for 18 months in 228L tonneaux (20% new). Unfined and unfiltered.
Pairing: The importer, North Berkely Imports, suggests pairing this wine with roast lamb with herbs, aged French cheese, or braised beef in sauce.
About. This hard-working, generations-deep Burgundian family—particularly among the rarified air of Vosne-Romanée—are hands-in-the-soil growers, first and foremost. Caring for their few acres according to organic principles, Fabrice and Christine Vigot craft Burgundy wines that are earthy and soulful and utterly transparent to their underlying terroir. For decades this family tended the vineyards of the Mugneret-Gibourg estate (under a crop-sharing contract). Their humble demeanor and low profile belie their outsized talent; it is past time that their wines received the attention they’ve for so long deserved.
