Red Wine Armand Heitz 2021 Bourgogne RougeRegular price $32.99
The vineyard has been shaped over the centuries by the Dukes of Burgundy, by monks and by winegrowers. A bottle of Burgundy is a piece of French heritage. I chose to claim on the Bourgogne Rouge labels and not Bourgogne Côte d'Or or Bourgogne Pinot Noir. My opinion is that these last two appellations impose unsustainable management methods where the Bourgogne Blanc appellation allows you to work in a more virtuous way, as with medium-wide plantations for example.
Grape variety: Pinot Noir
History and tradition: The estate's plots are located next to the most prestigious vines on the Côte de Beaune, in the villages of Mercurey, Meursault and Pommard.
Soil: Clay-silty soil on marl. The clay richness of the soil makes it possible to obtain rich and aromatic wines.
