PHILIPPE LE HARDI "Vieilles Vignes" - AOC Bourgogne Pinot Noir - France

The vieilles vignes (old vines) enable a superb interpretation of these plots due to the vines' maturity. Thanks to a fold in the land on the Côte Chalonnaise we are able to offer this very high quality Bourgogne Pinot Noir regional cuvée. This wine unveils a ruby color and a nose combining cherry and blackberry flavours. A velvety texture and outstanding expression are obtained thanks to this unique plot selection.

Critique Review

"This is a generous wine, with red fruits and a soft texture. Fresh cherry and raspberry flavors are backed by a light tannic structure and layers of acidity. Drink the wine from 2020."

Vineyard Info

The estate of Domaine du Chateau Philippe Le Hardi (formerly known as Château de Santenay) is spread over an area of 90 ha ( 222 acres) stretching from the southern vineyards of Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise up to the Grand Cru of Clos des Vougeot in Cote de Nuits. The castle was once the residence of the Duke of Burgundy Philippe Le Hardi (Philippe the Bold) ( 1342-1404) who was the first and foremost ambassador of Burgundy and its great wines. A third of our estate is located in the Côte d’Or with vineyards in Aloxe-Corton, Beaune 1er Cru, St Aubin, Pommard, and... Santenay of course and the rest is located in the up and coming appellation of Mercurey. The estate was converted to sustainable farming in 2004, Terra-vitis certified. We apply practices which respect the environment and don’t use herbicides pesticides, or artificial chemicals. Our goal is to maintain life in the soil and allow each plot’s terroir to express itself in the wines produced there. To this day, Pinot noir is still the grape used for all burgundy’s flagship red wines.
