Bourgogne Pinot Noir Chitry-Le-FortBourgogne Pinot Noir Chitry-Le-Fort

Pinot Noir grown in Chitry produces red wines with intense red fruit aromas and a gorgeous palate.  This is a young, virile and no-fuss wine that is fresh, easy to drink and instantaneously enjoyable.

Product type: French Red wine, Pinot Noir, Auxerrois, Burgundy, France (Dept. Yonne)

Vineyard location: Fully south-facing on a gentle slope.

Vine population: Pinot Noir – 8000 vine stocks per hectare.

Average age of vines: 28 years old.

Bottle closure: premium natural cork and capsule.

Wine-growing terroir: Clay and limestone marl formed in the Kimmeridgian (late Jurassic) age, giving rise to a shallow soil with a low gravel content and an abundant presence of small oyster fossils (Ostrea virgula).

Wine-making techniques: Maceration in vats for two to three weeks, regular pushing down of skins by hand (pigeages) and pumping-over, 12 months' maturing in vats.

Tasting notes & ageing potential: Clear, bright ruby red robe; plentiful red and black fruit aromas on the nose and cherry notes enriched with floral hints; balanced palate with moderate but well-crafted tannins.

The terroir, which is very unique in Pinot Noir growing terms, produces a wine with both fruity and floral aromas, particularly characterised by cherry notes. This is a wine with real personality.

Bourgogne Chitry is usually drunk young but will age comfortably for between three and six years.

Recommended serving temperature 15 to 16°C.
