Terroir and breeding
This pinot beurot comes from three parcels located in the commune of Marey les Fussey. The terroirs of the Hautes Côtes are particularly well suited to this grape variety. It fully expresses its powerful aromas while keeping a good finesse.
Alcoholic fermentation begins in vats with temperature control that remains below 20°C in order to keep all the fruity character of the musts. The wine is put into barrels during fermentation and the sugars finish slowly in the cellar. The wine is aged in 100% new barrels. This important woodiness blends very well with the aromatic power of the grape variety without unbalancing it.
This Pinot Beurot is a powerful and complex wine with aromas of white fruits and fresh mushrooms that blend perfectly with the woody notes. On the palate the attack is round and the finish long and powerful. In the first years the woodiness is very present. After 2 to 3 years, the aromas melt and we obtain a powerful and complex wine.
This powerful and aromatic white wine will accompany dishes of character: chicken with morel mushrooms, filet mignon. It can also be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or with foie gras.
