A 100% Pinot Noir with notes of strawberry, cherry and touch of black liquorice and hints of violet. Fresh, mineral and fruity with soft tannins but lots of structure. The perfect pairing for a cheese plate.
Emmanuel Giboulot comes from a long legacy of organic viticulture, and remains one of its greatest advocates in Burgundy today. He has four decades of experience in crafting the finest quality wines from a variety of terroir. Hautes-Côtes de Nuits is a Burgundian subregion located to the west of the Côte de Nuits. The vineyards, at elevations of 300-400 metres, populate the sides of valleys. The underlying rock is eroded limestone and marly subsoil with thin or non-existent topsoil. The name of the cuvée references the mont (mountain) which dominates the parcel and topped by an ancient monastery.
Vinification: From two parcels with 20 and 50 year-old, southeast facing vines on soils of marl and limestone with clay bands. Cultivated biodynamically since 1985, the grapes are picked by hand, destemmed and fermented in open wooden vats. The press and free-run juice are blended, allowed to settle, then rest about 20 days in tank. The extraction of aromas, tannins and colour is natural (no yeasts, enzymes or heat) and is done by traditional pumping over and punching down. The wine is then aged for 12 months in only old oak barrels.
Match it with: Charcuterie, grilled or roasted red meats, strong cheeses.
