Domaine Alain Michelot, whose ownership dates back to around 1880 and which has seen four generations of winemakers succeed one another who have contributed to the fame and reputation of this Domaine, is today a reference producer in Burgundy for the authenticity and quality of its wines.
In Burgundy, the Pinot Noir winemaking process follows a strict disciplinary to enhance the characteristics of the grape. The grapes are harvested manually, with selection in the vineyard, followed by pressing and fermentation in oak vats for about 10-15 days. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for aging and malolactic fermentation, which lasts an average of 12 to 18 months. During this period, the wine is tasted to monitor its development. After aging in the bottle, the wine is ready for marketing.
Dark ruby color with violet reflections. The nose exhales hints of ripe red fruit such as cherries and raspberries, accompanied by spicy, mineral and wet earth notes. On the palate, the tannin is firm but velvety, creating a silky texture that envelops the palate. Its structure is round and well balanced, with a long persistence of fruity and spicy flavours.
This wine lends itself perfectly to accompany red meats, aged cheeses and mushroom-based dishes. It is a wine that matures well over time and that offers an extraordinary tasting experience to those who love powerful and decisive wines, but at the same time extraordinarily elegant.
