2018 Domaine des Rouge Queues Bourgogne Rouge
Isabelle and Jean-Yves Vantey farm six hectares of certified biodynamic vineyards in Maranges, Santenay, and the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. These are pure, alive and raw wines crafted with love by this avant garde couple that do almost everything themselves. This pinot noir is an excellent representation of good farming in Burgundy and showcases unique, expressive characters of the terroir which are sometimes lost in the bigger estates. Coming from a clay and limestone soil, the juice is partly destemmed / partly whole bunch and aged for 12 months in older oak barrels before bottling. Quite a meaty, dark and richer style for this appellation with great generosity and silky finish.
