ROUGE QUEUES MARANGES ROUGE EN BULIET PINOT NOIR 2018
GRIP CHERRY LENGTH
EDGY / BIODYNAMIC / 750ML
The vineyard is south facing sitting at 200masl. The wine is 100% whole bunch Pinot Noir. Once fermentation has commenced it is foot stomped and left on skins for two weeks. The wine offers dark cherries and a broad tannin profile that rides the fruit spectrum all the way to the end.
From the distributor: Humble, sensitive, generous, honest.... there are so many adjectives that could describe Isabelle and Pierre Vantley, owners and vignerons of Domaine des Rouges Queues. I have met them and tasted their wines a few times on my journey and I have always liked the energy in what they produce.
Located in the town of Sampigny-lès-Maranges, this lovely couple farm six hectares of certified organic/biodynamic principal vineyards in Maranges, Santenay, and the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. These wines are an excellent representation of good farming in Burgundy and they have worked the vines without chemicals since 1998, date where they started the domaine. Showcasing unique, expressive character of the terroir that is sometimes lost in the bigger estates. These are pure, alive and raw wines crafted with loved by this avant-garde couple that do almost everything themselves.
Situated at the southernmost end of the Côte d'Or, they are relatively more affordable than any other famous appellations of Burgundy.
