Type: Red Wine
Country: France
Region: Burgundy
Code: BOUR003
This is a beautifully pure expression of village Pinot. A blend of old vine Bourgogne Pinot Noir, including fruit grown in the ‘Chapitre’ vineyard, where only 10% of a normal crop was produced. A sumptious mid-week red Burgundy!

Domaine Machard de Gramont

This 20 hectare family estate is managed by Arnaud Machard de Gramont and his two sons Alban and Alexis. The cellars are located in Prissey, a neighbouring hamlet of Nuits-St-Georges. These cellars were built in the XIXth century. Their superb vaults give a "cathedral" effect to the winery. The 20 hectares of vineyards cover an impressive range of appellations spanning 50 kilometres, from Chenôve (south of Dijon) to Puligny-Montrachet (South of Beaune). This domaine is a great source of Burgundy at sensible prices. “Value for money” is not something that is often associated with the wines of the Core d’Or, however, we have dealt with this family domaine for many years for our commercial Burgundy needs – it offers more individuality than most negociants and consistently performs well. The family owns small parcels in several different appellations and manages to seduce the individual characteristics from each one. This estate now uses a blend of American and French oak, developing a unique style in the appellation of Nuits-St-Georges, Gevrey-Chambertin and Pommard.
The colour is perfect, and the nose attractive and inviting, with aromas of sweet jammy red fruits, oak and a fresh green herb character. The palate is soft, rounded and layered, seductive throughout and showing fresh red fruits, smoky, gamey flavours, a hint of minerality and a lush, even and balanced finish.
