Background
The House of Albert Bichot has been located at the centre of Beaune, the historic capital of Burgundy wines, for over a century. Beaune is an appellation in its own right that is often underestimated, but that offers many very interesting terroirs producing balanced wines. This is precisely what we are seeking for this Beaune Clos de l’Ermitage, a vineyard located higher up the slope on the Montagne St-Désiré. Here, in calcareous clay soil overlying hard Oxfordian limestone, the Pinot Noir grapes express all of their finesse and precision combined with characteristic minerality.
Winemaking
Our Beaune "Clos de l’Ermitage" is redolent of toasted, smoky notes along with aromas of red fruit that are highly typical of Pinot Noir with a hint of leather and forest undergrowth on the nose. The fine, elegant tannins are dense and the structure is very bold. Lovely length with predominant mineral notes due to the terroir.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
This wine may be enjoyed now, or laid down for 5 to 7 years or more.
Food Matches
Ideal wine for fine dishes such as red meat, game, and mild, delicate cheeses. Serve at 17°C (62°F).
