We say…..A well balanced red from Burgundy! Real quality at excellent value.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Ursulines is an excellent value red burgundy wine produced by Jean-Claude Boisset.  The fruit for this wine comes from old vines, mostly from the Côte de Nuits, which ensures that the quality of the blend is far higher than that of a standard Bourgogne.  This Pinot Noir is bright ruby red in colour and has a very well balanced flavour.

Jean-Claude Boisset was radically transformed in 2002 with the arrival of viniculteur Grégory Patriat, one of the best viticulturalists/winemakers of his generation in Burgundy.  Grégory specialises in making wine from “lieu-dits” or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines.  He prefers to work with organic growers as he find they produce better fruit and also pays his producers by the hectare in order to ensure low yields.

The vineyard management here is stringent and uses specific techniques to control the yields which guarantees good concentration of flavour in the grapes.  These techniques include de-budding, cluster thinning, little or no use of fertiliser and environmentally-friendly vine production.  In 2018 the grape harvest began at the end of August which was around two weeks earlier than average.  The grapes were in excellent health and required virtually no sorting.

The grapes are hand-harvested and collected into small 20kg crates.  Grapes are fully de-stemmed but not crushed before being gravity fed into the vats.  Maceration lasts just over 3 weeks including one week of cold maceration to develop aroma and good colour.  Indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentation process.  Finally the wine is aged on lees for around eight months in lightly toasted French oak barrels (15% new) before being lightly filtered and bottled.

Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Ursulines is a well balanced red wine from Burgundy that represents great quality at excellent value.  It is lovely with all types of food or just to enjoy own its own.  Our Magnum, which contains the equivalent of 2 standard sized bottles, would be appreciated by red wine lovers everywhere.  A simple but classy bottle with a screwcap – perfect for picnics!
