Product Description

Montchovet Red

Montchovet Red or to give it its full name Montchovet Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge. It is a classic and fragrant lighter bodied red Burgundy. There are notes of ripe summer fruits; it is a wine with depth and backbone. As with so many Burgundy reds it is very clean, complex and has a delicate nose. It has a fine and diverse bouquet of aromas with red fruits and leafy undergrowth.

This red wine is made from organically grown Pinot Noir grapes – the great red variety of Burgundy. The 4.5 hectares of vines were planted between 1950 and 1990 about 4 kms from Pommard. The slopes are mainly west-facing and the soil clay limestone from the Jurassic period. The grapes are harvested manually and the wine subject to a long fermentation, with up to 25 days in wooden vats. It is then aged in oak barrels for 12 months: with only 10% of the barrels being new oak. The grower notes that the sulphur added is very moderate.
