Graceful Premier Cru Pinot Noir w/ cellaring potential
Deep purple in colour with a freshness on the nose that’s wonderfully counter-balanced by an earthy palate. A bouquet of strawberry, raspberry and hibiscus greets you. The palate exudes tart red cherries, blackberries, truffles and cloves. Tannins are soft and supple adding to a caramel-like texture on a flavourful finish. Decant for an hour beforehand.
Food Pairing: Braised ox cheeks, roast lamb w/ gratin dauphinoise, Asian-style pork chops.
STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Maranges region in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune could be regarded as an outlier. In Burgundian terms, its creation in 1989 is relatively recent, although it is now considered an integral part of the region. The Cyrot brothers Marc-Emmanuel and Oliver are 4th generation winemakers here and are committed to making wines in the often imitated style of the region’s traditional method. With an emphasis on purity, here is a Premier Cru Pinot produced from 70 year old vines that won’t leave you re-mortgaging the house.
