Vineyard Notes: The Pinot Noir fruit was harvested by hand from 35 year old vines from the Barrigards plot in Chorey-lès-Beaune.
Winemaking Notes: The Pinot Noir ferments spontaneously in concrete and stainless-steel tanks after 70% destemming and a 5-6 day cold soak. Wine is blended after pneumatic pressing, remaining on its lees until assemblage prior to bottling. Malolactic fermenation occurs spontaneously in barrel during the early spring. The Bourgogne Rouge is then aged for 12 months in neutral barrels, rarely fined and occasionally filtered.
Tasting Notes: Cornu’s exemplary Bourgogne Rouge offers lovely purity in its profile with the high spice tones that are a classic feature of this section of the Cote de Beaune; light, slightly nervy, with an exuberance that makes this a fine companion with birds simply roasted or grilled, sausages on the flame, or a “dagwood”.
