Gachot Monot Bourgogne Kosher 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Bursting with Burgundian style, class, depth, and complexity - this Cote de Nuits Villages tastes more like 1er cru Nuits-St-Georges than village Burgundy.100% Pinot Noir<br/>Damien Gachot may work the vineyards of the lesser-known Cotes de Nuits Villages appellation, but he works his vines as if they were 1er Cru fruit from Nuits-Saint-Georges. He and his wife, Lise, are fifth-generation vignerons. Ever-smiling and tireless in his work, Damien was first saluted by the Hospices de Beaune as a young talent to be watched. In the most competitive market for Pinot Noir in the world, it is not an easy feat making a wine taste better than the pedigree of its soil would allow. Damien's genius is found in his ability to balance traditional philosophies in the vineyards and respect of terroir with more contemporary methodologies in the cellar. His style gracefully manages to achieve suppleness and approachability without sacrificing authenticity, typicity, or age-ability.
