PRODUCER: Domaine des Moirots is a family property situated in the village of Bissey-sur-Cruchaud that has been producing wine on about 30 acres of south facing vineyards in the Cote Chalonnaise, the region just to the south of the Cote de Beaune. The granite and limestone soils and climate here lends itself to the production of wines of firm acidity and supple minerality.
WINEMAKING: All the red grapes are hand-harvested, sorted and checked cluster by cluster using a selected table and totally and carefully de-stemmed. Fermentation takes place in concrete vat and lasts around 12 to 15 days without heating. Pumping over twice a day during the fermentation and punching of the cap only at the fermentation peak moment. Devatting, blending of free-run wine and press wine, 60% matured in new oak barrels and 40% in 1 vintage-used wine oak barrels. Wines are aged for 10 to 18 months depending on the vintages and the cuvée.
TASTING NOTE: A gastronomic wine exuding classic aromas of small red berries like cherry and strawberry with a delicate floral note. The palate is voluptuous and pleasing, even in youth. Tannins are poised provided a clean attack. Finish is long with great finesse and minerality.
