Bourgogne Pinot Noir Guy Chaumonta Great Classic! 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Guy Chaumont produces wines from vineyards on the Cte Chalonnaise, a low ridge in the southern part of Frances famous Burgundy region. Cte Chalonnaise now merits its own appellation to distinguish these wines from other Burgundys. Its reds are renowned for ripe fruit and drinkability compared to more tannic and concentrated reds from the areas further north around Beaune.The Chaumont eight acre estate is quite small, like many local vineyards. Guy took over seventeen years ago from his father, who had converted to organic growing ten years earlier out of concern for the familys health. Their vineyard is certified organic by Ecocert, one of the French certifying agencies. Grapes are fertilized and protected from pests naturally, without synthetic chemical sprays.Smooth, fruity and aromatic. Aged in new & old oak after pressing. Full of the ripe berry flavor of Pinot Noir. It will age gracefully and is excellent with meat, cheeses and hearty casseroles.AOC Bourgogne; 100% Pinot NoirAlcohol Content: 12% AGING POTENTIAL : DRINK BEFORE 2010
