The production area for this wine is the whole of Burgundy. The Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir "Les Petites Pierres" comes from a balanced blend of Côte d'Or, including Hautes Côte de Beaune and Hautes Côte de Nuits, Côte Chalonnaise (Mercurey, Buxy) and Auxerrois (Irancy ).
The wine will be quite complex because of the different grapes origin : Côte de Nuits, Saône et Loire and Irancy will give structure and tannins whilst Hautes Côtes will gives fruitiness.
Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir "Les Petites Pierres" is vinified in vats and then aged partly in oak barrels and partly in vats during 9 to 16 months before bottling.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
This wine is very typical of the Pinot Noir grape with its style of little red fruits aromas in its youth evolving to more complex aromas of spices and undergrowth with age.
When young, it will be perfect slightly chilled with grilled or broiled red meat. After 2 years, it will be perfect with more sophisticated dished like mild game or soft cheeses.
This wine can be kept 5 years and even more depending on the vintage and conditions of storage.
