- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Paul-Joseph Cyrot, at the time director of the Château de Pommard and Clos de Tart Morey-Saint-Denis, founded this estate in the 1920s. Four generations have followed each other since, at the Domaine, each bringing new parcels of vines: Burgundy, Volnay, Maranges 1er Cru, Santenay 1er Cru, Pommard and Pommard 1er Cru, an exceptional terroir for Pinot Noir. In 1989, Olivier, his great-grandson, took over the estate. With his wife Fabienne, they manage the 6 ha family estate. Cyrot-Buthiau's small terraced vineyards are meticulously tended by the award-winning winemaker and owner.
TASTING NOTES: Elegant nose combines notes of poached plum, dark cherry liqueur and a plethora of floral wisps. The mid-palate is also quite supple and generous yet manages to retain reasonably good detail on the refined, lightly stony and youthfully austere finale. Note that this is slightly firmer and a wine that will likely need all of a decade, and perhaps a few more years, to reach its full apogee.
