Le Renard Pinot Noir Bourgogne AOC 2015
With 37 hectares in total, including 15 hectares of 1er Crus, Château de Chamirey is one of the largest estates of Mercurey and also one of the best in quality. The Devillard family has always played a huge part in the reputation of the appellation by always maintaining high standards in their production. The vineyard is run in “culture raisonnée”, which limited at the minimum the use of chemicals, and using traditional winemaking techniques.
Le Renard has incredible finesse that shows notes of black pepper, spices and red cherry fruit. Elegant and pure, the wine exhibits notes of balsamic and smooth sweet tannins. What makes this particular bottling so unique for its price is that Domaine Devillard sources the Pinot Noir fruit from its three properties in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Mercury and Givry. A great value indeed!
This medium-bodied red Burgundy will be perfect with a barbecue! You can also open it with some delicatessen, cold starters and grilled meats
