Domaine Parent Bourgogne Cote d’Or 2019 – Cert Organic
The Cote d’Or winegrowers asked to have a specific classification for Bourgogne Cote d’Or which was made law in 2018, hence the new label and name designation. Domaine Parent were a big supporter of this decision as their Bourgogne is only sourced from the villages of Pommard and Volnay. Sourced from two parcels. exclusively Domaine fruit. 40 to 50 year old vines.
100% destemmed. Pieage at the start and towards end of fermentation. Pressed to barrel. No new oak used but she emphasises that she only uses her barrels for 5 years maximum for any of the wines. She doesn’t like after that as it doesn’t help oxidation. 228ltr barrels. 12 months total.
“There is just enough reduction present to push the ripe fruit to the background. The rich, succulent and rounded middle weight flavors possess both good freshness and verve before concluding in a refreshing and balanced finish. This would make a good all-around house red” – Outstanding – Top Value – Burghound
