Arnaud Baillot, Burgundy
Located in Beaune, the heart of the Côte d’Or. Owner and winemaker, Arnaud Baillot, now presents his third vintage of limited edition Burgundy crus.
Passionate about the diversity of wines the Burgundy region has to offer, Arnaud has teamed up with his wife Laure (grandaughter of Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat in Chambolle-Musigny) to produce a spectacular range of villages and crus Burgundy wines. Arnaud has been hands-on all along the way, selecting the origin of the grapes, overviewing the winemaking process, choosing the type of barrels and ageing time for each individual wine. In 2017, Arnaud and Laure acquired a small vineyard in Côte de Beaune, making their first step in having their own Estate produced wines at Domaine Arnaud Baillot. Their philosophy is to respect and promote the complexity of the Burgundy wine region while producing terroir driven wines.
Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017
This Bourgogne wine is subject to a special selection of 100% Pinot Noir grapes that come essentially from the Côte d’Or. A veritable initiation in the great red grape variety of Burgundy, it envelops its fruit with great elegance.
A wine with medium intensity colour, purplish in its youth changing to ruby and then garnet after several years in bottle. A harmonious and balanced wine with a plump fruitiness and silky texture offset by round, gentle tannins with a medium body and elegant structure. The very typical, fragrant varietal bouquet is complemented by a deliciously lingering finish.
This wine can be enjoyed with grilled or braised red meats, roasts, mild game, and soft cheeses like Camembert and Brie.
