Bourgogne Rouge Les Crays 2018, Domaine des Vignes du Maynes
Region: Mâconnais, Burgundy
Grape/s: Pinot Noir
Production: Organic & biodynamic certified, hand harvested, natural yeasts, zero added sulphur
This Pinot Noir comes from 40 year-old vines in very chalky soils in the Mâcon, which give a high level of acidity and gas, it can therefore be quite strict at first and needs a moment to open up. As usual, this is vinified with zero added sulfur. As it is kept for two winters in barrel it is incredibly stable.
It is beautifully fine, elegant and astoundingly complex with many layers, like a millefeuille.
A very distinct expression of Pinot Noir and Julien says this wine always has a strong citrus, pink grapefruit note along with peony, rose petal and sweet cherry. Très digest! If you ever don’t know what to drink drink this!! We could not agree more! Decant and come back to it in a half hour. Merveilleux!
