    Winemaker Notes

    A Pinot Noir with a well-defined nose of brambly red berry fruit. The palate is slightly rustic and light-bodied, but fresh with tart cherry fruit and hints of brown spices with orange peel toward the pointed, firm finish.

    Louis Chevallier, Burgundy, France
    At Louis Chevallier, terroir reigns supreme. With vineyards situated on Premier Cru and Grand Cru parcels as well as Village and Beauujolais Cru plots, the terroir of Louis Chevallier is some of the most envied in all of Burgundy and, even in the world. Named after its founder, the great diplomat and former mayor of Puligny Louis Chevallier, who was recognized in particular for his participation in the sale of Louisiana to the United States, the Maison was created by the Chevallier family over 200 years ago. Today the estate continues to produce fine wines from both their own vineyards and grapes purchased from a network of growers in the region.

    The wine maker, Bruno Larmonica, is as much a product of the Burgundian terroir as the superior fruit with which he works. Bruno was born in the beautiful Nuits-Saint-Georges, a small and harmonious capital of the vineyard that used to belong to the Langres archdiocese. As a child, Bruno particularly loved the surrounding hills of the village that offered the greatest view of the juicy plants. Soon he started to dedicate his summers to the culture of vines and his falls to the harvest season.

    At the age of 16, Bruno realized that his hometown of Nuits-Saint-Georges was his comfort zone and that would spend his whole life in this lovely village. He already knew at that time that every single thing he will undertake will be linked to Pinot Noir. He became apprentice vintner in the Chauvenet estate where vintage after vintage he learned how to get the best expression of the terrior. Bruno finally understood that the most suitable place for him was the cellar as we wanted to be away from the world’s hustle and bustle staying with his barrels making wine. Her perfected the wine making techniques using the right balance of oak casks made with oak trees from the Cîteaux forest but also selecting various sourcing from other French regions.

    Infatuated with his hometown, he know by heart every parcel of this legendary vineyard that saw him becoming the incredible winemaker.

    Burgundy

    A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. After centuries of winemaking, the Burgundians have determined precisely which grape clone grows best on which plot of land. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

    Burgundy’s cool, marginal climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory, and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

    The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red, white, and rosé are all produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

    Pinot Noir

    View all wine

    One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

    Perfect Pairings

    Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

    Sommelier Secret

    Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
