Domaine Denis Carré

A new addition to our portfolio, this domaine was established by Denis Carré and his wife in 1974 with the first vintage produced in 1975. Situated in the heart of the village of Meloisey in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, it covers 12ha in 12 different appellations. Although not certified, the domaine is farmed organically. It has been run by his son and daughter, Martial and Gaetane, since 2008. Full of energy and passion they are raising the quality of wines produced here at an impressive speed

Tasting Notes

Aged in 25% new oak, this is a cracking wine, tight, stoney minerality and impressively complex. The palate is rich and buttery.

Food Matches

A delicious accompaniement to turkey and chicken dishes.
