The Cote de Nuits Villages from Domaine Ravaut is a real Burgundy terroir wine. The 45-year old 100% Pinot Noir vines are located on 4.7 acres of parcelles along the tops of hillsides in Comblanchien and Corgoloin (the first villages in the Cote de Nuits as you leave Ladoix and the Cote de Beaune and head towards Nuits-Saint-Georges).
They truly are the Ravaut passion, matched only by their deep respect for the land and soils the vines dig their roots into. They grow in sandy limestone soils, allowing excellent drainage (and thus concentrating flavors and ripeness in the berries).
|Wine maker notes
|Small red fruit aromas, characteristic of Pinot Noir, enveloped by graciously supple tannins. Concentrated and rich in color, this wine offers excellent balance, poised all the way through the finish. Excellent with roasted and grilled meats, fowl, and refined cheeses. Drink now, and keeps 3 to 6 years.
