Domaine BENOIT CHEVALLIER Coteaux Bourguignons 2021

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: Coming from old vines with low yield, this full-bodied wine is characterized by a high phenolic concentration. Its colour is a dark red, tending towards black. The nose presents floral and black fruit aromas. It has a beautiful energy on the palate, marked by powerful black fruit flavours (blackberries, blackcurrants) at the attack. In the finish, there are robust tannins balanced by beautiful acidity.

About the winery:
Domaine Benoît Chevallier is a new estate in the village of Vosne Romanée, defying the trend of high vineyard prices in the appellation. Despite the challenges, they gained recognition by winning the Trophée des Jeunes Talents award in their first vintage. Benoît, formerly working in IT, returned to his hometown and revived the family winery after leasing the vineyard for ten years. The vineyards (4ha), including premier cru plots (Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Damodes, and Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Boudots), were transitioned to organic farming practices during the lease period. Benoît focuses on sustainable vineyard management, employing techniques such as Guyot Poussard pruning, higher leaf canopy to optimize photosynthesis and provide enhanced protection for the fruit and using organic compost and treatments.
