Andre Montessuy – Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2016

The Andre Montessuy’s 2016 vintage has a shiny ruby red color. The nose opens with aromas of raspberries and strawberries highlighted by a discreet spicy background. A structured and elegant wine with complex notes.

REGION  Burgundy, France

GRAPE VARIETAL  Pinot Noir

TERROIR  Limestone soils mixed with some clays and marls.

CULTURE & VINIFICATION  The grapes are handpicked and carefully selected in the vineyard. About 2/3rd of the harvest is destemmed in order to avoid unwanted vegetal aromas and rest was left in whole bunches to add an extra complexity to the wine. Then, all the grapes are vated for fermentation during 23 days – the first week with pre-fermentary maceration. This process guaranteed the typical lightness of Pinot Noir.

FOOD PAIRING  Perfect with red meats, either grilled or roasted, game and soft cheeses.

ALCOHOL CONTENT  12.5%
