Grape(s): Pinot Noir
Localization: Cote de Beaune, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
Tasting notes: The velvet hammer - soft and silky on entry, then builds across the palate to a powerful finish. Raspberry and perfumed cherry aromas dominate.
The Domain: The Vaumuriens vineyard (loosely translated as “better than nothing”) is located just above the Premier Cru Rugiens. Its name was derived from pointing out the parcel on the hillside – “It’s not the Rugiens, but it’s better than nothing!”
