Côte de Nuits Villages 'Aux Montagnes'
A more serious Burgundy offering to revel in, from a one hectare parcel on steep slopes near the village of Comlanchien. With a long cold maceration and fermentation which starts naturally, the pressed wine is put in used oak barrels for around 24 months, before bottling without fining or filtration. It is dark, ripe and expressive with notes of blackcurrant, black cherry and pepper with a lovely soft fruit forward character overall.
Based in the heart of Burgundy in Chorey-les-Beaune. Sylvain took over the 3.5 hectare domaine from his grandparents in 2005, and switched it to organic shortly after. His youth, energy and passion is evident in the fruit driven, classic style Burgundy wines he produces, which are amongst some of the best we have ever come across.
