Organically farmed Pinot Noir from Cotes de Nuits (Burgundy).
New oak barrels are banned at the domaine of Vincent Ledy (he only uses ones that have seen a minimum of four vintages). He wants to avoid adding in any "outside" tannins from the barrel, the ones found in the stunning fruit he sources are sufficient. Ledy diligently farms just 2.6 hectares, crafting pure wines that are sophisticated and approachable. Medium bodied with notes of sour cherry, red currants, forest floor, and hints of red flowers. Abundant acid makes this very food friendly - pair with everything from pepperoni pizza to grilled pork to chicken tacos.
"In the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits I’m in the commune of Chaux" says Vincent Ledy, "My vineyards are between Chaux and Villers-la-Faye. It’s mid-slope and one of the best spots on the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. The soil is not very deep. Very close to the rock. It’s clay and limestone. I was very lucky to find it."
