Tasting Notes :

This Burgundy has a solid ruby color with a powerful nose that reveals notes of black fruit such as black currant, blackberry, and black cherry in addition to elegant and well integrated notes of wood. In the mouth, the wine has lots of fruit and a good structure with tight but elegant tannins. It comes off as dense but with the refinement of great Volnays. It has a beautiful length on the palate.

History:

Established in 1975 by Chantal Lescure and her husband, Xavier Machard de Gramont, Domaine Chantal Lescure is a family estate, currently owned by their children : Aymeric et Thibault Machard de Gramont. The Domaine Chantal Lescure owns 18 hectares of vineyard, from Chambolle-Musigny on the Côte de Nuits to Volnay, on the Côte de Beaune. They have now also achieved certified organic status. The domaine’s working motto is: “Great wines require great vines.” The approach in the vineyard is of utmost importance as regards the quality of the grapes. All year long, great care is taken to ensure the grapes are perfectly healthy and ripe come harvest time. The cultivation methods respect the soil, the plant and the environment — and are part of the team’s broader philosophy on soil health and plant-soil balance. The winemaking techniques, which use gentle and natural methods without additives, preserve the integrity of the grapes. The goal is to obtain wines which truly reflect the specificities of each terroir.
