STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Domaine Michel Noëllat is a highly regarded and historic Burgundy producer, founded in the 19th century by Felix Noëllat and situated in the middle of the village of Vosne Romanée Today, it is run by 5th and 6th generation family members Alain and Jean-Marc. Domaine Michel Noëllat practices ‘lutte raisonée’ (sustainable practices) in their 27 hectares of vineyard in the Côte de Nuits, augmented by parcels in Savigny-lès-Beaune. The average age of the vines is between 60 and 70 years old.
Coteaux Bourguignons is a newish appellation created in 2011 to replace the always oddly named Bourgogne Grand Ordinaire. Although the name translates as Slopes of Burgundy, it is in fact a catch all category covering the whole region from north of Chablis down to and including Beaujolais. It covers reds, whites and rosés and includes all the varieties grown, so for reds that is Pinot Noir, Gamay plus César and Tressot from the Yonne department.
