Jean-Claude Boisset, Bourgogne Pinot Noir Les Ursulines, 2021
Region: Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Noir
This wine has a beautiful, bright, clear ruby colour and a very elegant bouquet with intense aromas of fresh red fruits, a light woodiness and hints of blackcurrant buds. There is a nice acidity on the palate with very silky tannins and a long, luxurious finish.
The fruit for this wine comes from the on Nuits-Saint-Georges village on the South – East facing 1.76 hectare plot “Petit Chaillot” which is located on the Premeaux-Prissey side. Soils here are clay – limestone and very stony. Vines are on average 60 years old and they are Guyot trained. They produce very small bunches of Pinot Noir grapes with very thick skins; a sign that the wine will have great concentration.
