Pinot Noir, Domaine Larue
In 1946, Guy Larue founded his family’s estate in the small hamlet of Gamay, in Saint-Aubin, located just behind the famed Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet slope. The limestone-rich soils here, combined with varying grades of slope and elevations ranging from 800 to 1200 feet, provide the Larues with a truly magical diversity within Saint-Aubin, one of the under-rated gems of Burgundy. Wines from Larue possess purity, energy, and an invariable minerality derived from the predominant limestone soils of this appellation.
Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019 is a red wine from Burgundy produced by Domaine Larue. It is made from Pinot Noir grapes from old vines located in the climat of "Fontaine Sot", in the regional and communal appellation area of Chassagne-Montrachet.
The parcels are south-facing at an altitude of 200 metres and lie flat on a deep clay-limestone soil. After three to five days of cold maceration, alcoholic fermentation begins for about 15 days, followed by aging in used oak barrels. After aging for 10 months, the wine is refined and bottled after a light filtration.
This Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019 shows an intense ruby red color in the glass, on the nose it expresses fruity aromas of blackberries and small bramble fruits. The sip is medium-bodied and characterized by silky tannins that enhance the appeal of Pinot Noir.
