Tasting Notes

This fine, elegant Clos du Chapitre is a very Burgundian style of Pinot Noir. Aromas of red and black fruit dominate the nose with violets and cherry in abundance. Fine, supple tannins and a refreshing acidity on the palate make this a truly remarkable bottle of organic Pinot Noir.

Food match: a beautiful wine which will enhance many dishes, particularrly well suited to game dishes. 

In October 2002, Hélène Jaeger-Defaix, Didier's wife, took over her first vineyard in Rully 1er cru Mont-Palais white ( South Burgundy ) from her great-aunt Henriette Niepce and in 2003 she added to this a second plot of Rully 1er Cru red. Located in the south of Côte de Beaune, Rully is a vineyard of 330 ha ( 220 ha white, 110 ha red) amongst which only 100 ha are classified as 1er crus. The estate in Rully's estate is managed in the same spirit as the vineyard in Chablis, that is with the respect for the environment and with the expression of the terroirs as the main goal.

Viticultural details: these organically farmed vineyards have an average vine age of 40 years. The soils are perfect for the cultivation of grapes with great aeration of the soil. The plant density is about 10000 plants per hectare and harvest is by hand.

Winemaking: a severe sorting is done when the grape arrives at the cellar followed by de-stemming. Maceration and fermentation is carried out with natural yeasts over approx 3 weeks.
