The Wine Merchants Bourgogne Pinot Noir by Maison Camille Giroud 2017

The Wine Merchant’s Bourgogne Pinot Noir was made by Maison Camille Giroud, the celebrated négociant founded in Beaune in 1865. Winemaker Carel Voorhuis sourced the grapes from a handful of quality-minded growers, primarily in the Côte de Beaune and Côte Chalonnaise. It is a classic expression of this famous grape in its spiritual home.

All the grapes for this cuvée were de-stemmed. Fermentation took place with natural yeast, followed by two weeks in vat. The wine was then aged for 10 months in used French oak barrels of 228 and 350 litres. It is unfined and gently filtered (cellulose plate) before bottling.

Elegant and refined, this wine has crunchy, vibrant red-berry fruit, silky tannins and a floral perfume. It requires no further ageing and is an excellent match for fish, game or lighter red-meat dishes.
