Domaine MAXIME COTTENCEAU Bourgogne 2021 (Rouge)

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Chardonnay

Tasting notes: "The 2021 Bourgogne Rouge has turned out especially well, delivering aromas of strawberries, rose petals, orange rind and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and perfumed palate. Destemmed entirely by hand (retaining some pedicels), it's one of Cottenceau's finest reds to date." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
Maxime Cottenceau studied viticulture and oenology in Beaune while working alongside the talented Vincent Dureuil from Domaine Dureuil-Janthial in Rully. After three years with him, Maxime settled back in his hometown of Buxy, just south of Givry in the Cote Chalonnaise, to take over the family estate. Maxime immediately put a stop to the use of herbicides, cultivating the soils and began organic conversion in 2020. Needless to say, all cellar work and vineyard work are done following the lunar cycles in true Biodynamic style. A truly exciting domain that is worth following up on.
