Winemaker Notes

The wine is dark and purple. Blackberries dominate the nose, along with blackcurrants and blueberries. There is a more savage side exhibited in the notes of juniper and hawthorn. Even if in youth the nose is discreet, its class is always evident. Concentrated and deep, but with elegance primordial. The tannins are fine, but a certain firmness holds place. A welcome minerality supports the finish.

Its elegant structure marries well with dishes such as saddle of lamb, rib steaks or duck breasts.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
With the blackness of roasted eggplant skin, this has an intriguing yin character, needing something meaty and spicy to balance its dark, savory intensity. Panelist Jamal Rayyis suggested imam biyaldi, a Middle Eastern dish of eggplant, meat and pine nuts.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Violet, black currant, licorice and mineral flavors abound in this racy red. Harmonious and linear in profile, with fine length. More penetrating than layered, revealing an echo of mineral. Best from 2016 through 2024. 25 cases imported.

Domaine Michele et Patrice Rion, France
Domaine Michele et Patrice Rion Winemaker Patrice Rion Winery Image
Patrice Rion and his wife Michèle began their own small domaine in 1990 while Patrice continued as winemaker at the family domaine. They enlarged in 2000 when Patrice left Domaine Daniel Rion and built his own winery and cellar. Patrice and Michele’s son Maxime joined the family business in 2005 after completing oenology studies in Dijon.

The domaine currently farms 15 acres focused in the Nuits Saint Georges and Chambolle-Musigny appellations, and works with growers in other 1er Cru vineyards in the Côte de Nuits. The approach to viticulture in all vineyards is rigorous with vines that are pruned short and bud selection kept very low. The vineyards are farmed without herbicide, preferring to plow and hoe as a way to control weeds.

Patrice and Maxime do not believe that the “maximum” is the “optimum,” particularly when it comes to extracting phenolics, tannins, and color. Instead, you will find wines that maintain the freshness and minerality of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Patrice is known for “very pure, harmonious wines, skilfully vinified,” according to Jasper Morris, MW.
