This wine is very typical of the Pinot Noir grape grown in its mother land, with its style of little red fruit aromas in its youth evolving to more complex aromas of spices and undergrowth with age.
This wine is produced throughout Burgundy. The Louis Jadot Bourgogne Pinot Noir Couvent des Jacobins ?cuvée? comes from a balanced blend of Côte d'Or, including Hautes Côte de Beaune and Hautes Côte de Nuits, Côte Chalonnaise (Mercurey) and Auxerrois (Irancy ).
The wine will be quite complex because of the different origins of the grapes : Côte de Nuits, Saône et Loire and Irancy will provide structure and tannins whilst Hautes Côtes will give characteristic fruitiness.
Our Bourgogne Pinot Noir Couvent des Jacobins is vinified in vats by different growers with different styles (depending on the area where the grapes come from). The wine is then aged partly in oak barrels and partly in vats during the 9 to 16 months before bottling.
