    Winemaker Notes

    This Pinot Noir displays high-quality, pure fruit with a pronounced and lovely minerality. On the palate, the wine is rich and mouthfilling. The vintage and wine are transparent representations of the terroir and appellation.

    Rajat Parr is considered one of the greatest sommeliers of our time and has a particular affection for the wines of Burgundy. Rajat Parr’s devotion to Burgundy is well-known. Since his earliest days as a Sommelier in San Francisco, the great reds and whites of the Cote d'Or have been his muses. The restaurants he has created and the wines he makes are all inspired from his deep love of Burgundy.

    Meaning the “home at the edge of the forest,” the creation of the negociant house Maison L'Oree is Rajat’s first opportunity to help produce the very wines that have inspired his life.

    For both the avid consumer of Burgundian wines and the newcomer to this often-intimidating region, Maison L’Orée presents the opportunity to explore the region via vetted, curated selections from a passionate advocate of the area.

    Guided by Rajat’s palate and knowledge, Maison L’Orée offers small quantities of hand-selected wines from Rajat’s favorite vineyard sites in Burgundy.

    Nuits-St-Georges

    Contributing to the name, “Côte de Nuits,” representing the northern half of the Côte d’Or, this village marks its far southern end. Nuits-St-Georges is a busy, market-driven town and home to many of Burgundy’s negociants. It is also the largest town in the Côte d’Or after Beaune. The appellation itself is divided into two parts, where in the north it directly borders Vosne-Romanée, the southerly end is the commune of Prémeaux. There are no Grand Crus in this village, though it does have a large number of Premier Crus.

    The best Nuits Pinot noir are layered with cherry, plum, underbrush and sandalwood. The fruit is sweet, the wine energetic, and the finish long and lush.

    Pinot Noir

    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.
