- In Burgundy, the best wines are the direct reflection of their terroir.
- The tinier the surface, the better the wine.
- Griotte-Chambertin is the perfect example—a minuscule square-shaped parcel, less than three hectares and the place where a remarkable wine is produced.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: The most refined cuisine is of course a must with Griotte-Chambertin: the highest grade of prime meat, the finest sauces and the ripest cheeses. The age of the wine is, of course, a determining factor: more subtle dishes are preferred with an older wine; for instance, eight-to-fifteen years of age.
TASTING NOTES: “Tasting Griotte-Chambertin is always cause for reflection: the aromas are complex and subtle, with hints of cherry liqueur, preserved cherry, fine leather, nutmeg. When the wine matures, there are hints of truffle and venison. The flavors are also arresting in their own way and the tannins, although present, are never aggressive or coarse. Long and persistent on the palate, with a glorious aftertaste”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
