A. et P. De Villaine 'La Digoine' Bourgogne Cote Chalonnaise Rouge 2018 (.750)

A. et P. De Villaine 'La Digoine' Bourgogne Cote Chalonnaise Rouge 2018 (.750)

Vinified in wooden vats for 14 days and then matured in two to five year old barrels. The nose immediately seduces with the depth of the fruit and its power. The palate is incredibly fine for a pinot noir at this appellation level. The ripe and silky tannins give the wine some weight, depth which augurs a good ageing potential. The aromatic identity of La Digoine is preserved. To drink now for the fruit while taking care to open the bottle few hours before or wait a good ten years to discover its deep aromas and see the wine gain complexity. (Domaine de Villaine뭩 note)

Careful selection and sorting of the grapes is done in the vineyard. Wine is fermented and aged in wood cuves with a minimum 2/3 of the stems, depending on the vintage. The wine stays in cuve for 10 to 12 days, so as to add extra skin tannins and just a little tannin from the seeds and stems. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine and must are separated and the must is pressed. The pressed must is tasted separately and sometimes blended back into the wine. The wine is raised for 10 to 12 months depending on the vintage. Vines are 35-45 years old on clay/limestone soil.
