Bourgogne La Chapelle Notre-Dame

Coulour

Red and rosé wine: Pinot Noir 

Wine Characteristics

The reds are purple in color with hints of ruby. The nose reveals a cocktail of red and black fruit, with hints of blackcurrant, strawberry, and cherry, with touches of wild fruit and blueberry. In the mouth, it is broad and fruity, underscored by perfectly crisp tannins and integrated freshness on the finish.

Wine Steward’s Tip

Red: The fleshy fruitiness and freshness from the red wines is a perfect match for convivial cuisine, such as feathered game pâté, jambon persillé, bacon omelet, sophisticated cold cuts, mushroom velouté, chicken fricassee, roast veal in sauce, grilled beef tournedos, rustic goat cheese and other soft cheeses.
Serving temperature: 15-17°C.

Situation

La Chapelle Notre-Dame is one of the rare Régionale AOC Climats that is allowed to have its name on wine labels. The vines are located alongside the road from Beaune to Dijon, at the bottom of Corton hill in Ladoix-Serrigny. The vines grow close beside the chapel of Notre-Dame du Chemin, from where the appellation takes its name.

Terroirs

The vines are located to the south of Ladoix-Serrigny, on a bulge on the crest at between 225-235m above sea level, enjoying a favorable aspect, facing southeast. The vines grow on more or less sandy and silty marl and clay.
