Domaine Denis Carré

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.

An outstanding, all consuming, seductive bouquet, regal and full of wild strawberry fruits balanced by a distinct smokiness. The palate is velvety in texture with succulent sweet strawberry juice whilst the tannins are plush. This wine has a lovely ripeness and structure with a concentrated core that offers good cellaring.
Goes well with raspberry marinated rack of lamb.
South east exposure, all fruit is handpicked, crushed gentle and the juice fermented in concrete vats, with regular pump-overs to aid extraction. The wine was aged in new and used oak for 11 months.
