Region: Burgundy, France
Color/Style: Red Wine
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Gamay, Chardonnay
A special cuvée that honors eleven hundred years of winemaking, the vineyards in the Clos des Vignes du Maynes having been planted around AD 900 and wine first produced for the Abbey of Cluny around 910. This is a field blend of Chardonnay, Gamay and Pinot Noir, including the old varieties Gamay Petit Grain and Pinot Fin. The grapes are hand-harvested then pressed by foot, vinified and aged without sulfur and bottled by hand in the spring. Annually one of our favorite zero zero wines. Pure and perfumed nose of flowers, red and dark fruits. Absolutely delicious on the palate with ripe red fruits and a touch of acid.
