About the Wine

Planted just above the Grands Crus of the Côte de Nuits. Located on an East-Southeast-facing slope 350 meters above the Clos de Vougeot on rocky clay and limestone soils. The wine is destemmed, cold macerated for a week, wild yeast fermented (half in tank and half in old barrels) then aged on its lees for 9 months. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with a minimal drop of SO2. This wine is a bright yet dense Pinot Noir that offers red berry and flowery notes, ending with a long finish.

Domaine Manuel Olivier has been producing wine for four generations. Under the guidance of Manuel today, the estate grows all their grapes organically with sustainable practices included whenever possible. In the winery, only native yeasts are used for fermentation, and no chemicals are added to the wine.

Aging: 12 months on the lees. 50% in stainless steel vats, 50% in oak barrels (33% new oak).

Tasting Notes: 100% Pinot Noir. The elegant nose bursts with notes of ripe red fruits. On the palate, the wine is fresh, the tannins melt onto the palate and capped with a harmonious finish. Enjoy with grilled or roasted poultry.
