Bourgogne Rouge Pinot Noir
Domaine de la Belouse
Bourgogne Rouge AOC
100% Pinot Noir
The Domaine de la Belouse estate was settled in 1970 with just one hectare of wine crop around La Roche Vineuse and Saint Vérand (South Burgundy). Since then, the vineyard has progressively grown to the current 38 hectares.
In 1999, the winery was built with new temperature-controlled oak barrels and stainless steel vats. Two pneumatic presses and a bottling line have completed the fittings. In 2008, a new wine cellar and an oak barrel cellar were created to increase the overall storage capacity.WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES
Vines are planted on chalky clay soils with stones with ideal sun exposure. Yields are kept low to enhance concentration. A cold maceration is followed by a cool, slow fermentation. Malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks is followed by hot pressing. The wine is aged for six months on the lees in stainless-steel tanks.TASTING NOTES
Ruby color. Red and black fruit aromas on the nose, and a supple, silky palate. Pairs well with red meats, game and cheeses.
