“The House of Albert Bichot has been located at the centre of Beaune, the historic capital of Burgundy wines, for over a century. Beaune is an appellation in its own right that is often underestimated, but that offers many very interesting terroirs producing balanced wines. This is precisely what we are seeking for this Beaune Clos de lErmitage, a vineyard located higher up the slope on the Montagne St-Désiré. Here, in calcareous clay soil overlying hard Oxfordian limestone, the Pinot Noir grapes express all of their finesse and precision combined with characteristic minerality.” Tasting: “Our Beaune “Clos de lErmitage” is redolent of toasted, smoky notes along with aromas of red fruit that are highly typical of Pinot Noir with a hint of leather and forest undergrowth on the nose. The fine, elegant tannins are dense and the structure is very bold. Lovely length with predominant mineral notes due to the terroir.” Aged in aok barrels 100% for 14-16 months.
