This cuvée come from several plots we own and located on the village of Premeaux-Prissey. The soils are mixed with clay and limestone with clay predominance. It represents 1.98ha (4.9 acres) with a density of plantation of 13 000 vines/hectare

Winemaking and Aging

Grapes are hand-harvested in leaky boxes to avoid juice-oxydation, sorted out, destemmed and put in tanks. Traditional vinification, in vat for the maceration and fermentation during 12 to 15 days in 2010: breaking the cap but no pumping over. 20% of the cuvee was aged in oak barrels (100% French oak) during 12 months. Malolactic fermentation was made totally. Winemaking and maturing are carefully followed by Robert Vernizeau, our talented winemaker.

Tasting notes

This Bourgogne Pinot Noir Domaine des Perdrix 2010 has a beautiful garnet dress with purplish tints.
The nose is fresh and intense. Aromas are opening on black fruits (blackcurrant, dark cherry) developing on cinnamon and ginger.
The mouth is smooth, rich with a great volume. We taste again the black fruits and light woody notes we got on the nose.
Great potential
