Domaine Rougeot Père & Fils - Volnay-Santenots 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

$129.00

Organic. 100% Pinot Noir. The Volnay premier cru Santenots is technically located in the village of Meursault, though vignerons discovered long ago that there’s more demand for Volnay than Meursault Rouge, and therefore arranged to label reds from their northernmost vineyards as Volnay. This is Rougeot's most structured red wine, with a steely tannic frame—it’s intended to age and will gracefully. .85ha vineyard, 30 to 50 year-old vines. Vinified whole-cluster. Élevage is 18 months, 2/3 of the juice in neutral barrels, 1/3 in new wood.

The “Les Santenots” plot is located in the northern part of Meursault, facing South-East, next to Volnay in the lower part of the village. This plot is classified as a Volnay 1er Cru for reds and as a Meursault 1er Cru for whites. This wine is a beautiful 1er Cru, very feminine in style, with plenty of silky tannins. The mouthfeel is complex, with some earthy flavors and a long finish. It will take three to four years to be at its peak. However, if you want decant it for an hour before serving, it will help open the wine up. The aging potential is long, around 10-12 years. It goes well with a very large array of cheeses made with cows milk, steak, pasta, stronger style of cured meat, and game.
