Guy & Yvan Dufouleur La Vacherotte Rouge Hautes-Cotes de Nuit 2016

25.00

Description

From two plots located on the hillside above Chaux, overlooking Nuits-Saint-Georges to the east, this Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Pinot Noir offers a premium Burgundy experience without the price premium of many of the named villages.

Cool fermented then aged in used oak for 10 months, the nose is wonderfully fruit-forward with aromas of blackcurrant, raspberry and cherry, backed up by savoury notes of game, leather and clove. A structured wine with good tannic grip but with great finesse and balance.

Serve at 14 to 16°C and enjoy up to 6 years from vintage.

Producer: Domaine Guy & Yvan Dufouleur

The Dufouleurs have been around a bit in Burgundy, with 14 generations involved in growing and winemaking going back to Gilles Dufouleur in 1596. Father and son Guy and Yvan, 13th and 14th generation respectively, are the current custodians, with vineyard holdings amounting to 27 hectares over eleven appellations across the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits.

Despite the 400 years + of history, these are modern wines, with head winemaker Yvan utilizing modern techniques and technology to complement generations of knowledge passed down. The wines are fresh and accessible when young, accentuating the immaculate fruit. Vineyards have been organic since 2000, with yields and quality stringently controlled by green harvesting and hand sorting of grapes after picking.
